City Manager Jerry Blaisdell said the agreement was not about the city or the league but about what is “equitable to the citizens of Weatherford.”
“There are times the fees won’t cover capital expenses and at times they will,” Blaisdell said. “We simply want there to be an equitable use of all the fields, be it for baseball, soccer or whatever.”
Board member Jan Barton was dismayed the original board vote of 3-2 on Nov. 29 wasn’t enough. The council sent the agreement back to the board at its Jan. 8 meeting for further study of new financial information provided by the league.
Council member Waymon Hamilton said at that time he was disappointed by the simple quorum and wanted 100 percent participation n the matter, but the council said a simple quorum vote was sufficient.
No date has been set by the council to discuss the item. The council’s agenda for the Jan. 22 meeting has already been set.
