Metro Council To Consider Stadium Lease Agreement

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It looks like the Nashville Sounds will remain in Music City.

On Wednesday, the owners of the baseball team agreed on a new lease for Greer Stadium where the team plays.

However, there's still work to be done on the lease, which will be presented in a specially called Metro Council meeting Tuesday.

The current lease will expire at the end of the month. Mayor Karl Dean wanted the new owners to have time to make improvements to the stadium before the start of the season.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the Sounds said, "We plan to move ahead with getting contracts signed and beginning work on the stadium. There is much to be done between now and opening day to bring the stadium up to an acceptable level for our fans."

The lease agreement will not require additional costs to taxpayers.

Opening day for the Nashville Sounds at the newly renovated stadium is April 9, 2009.
