Council tosses Little League deal back to parks board

(Continued)

Some of the changes proposed include having more public use of Lions Field for soccer and other sports groups and a $5 increase for both resident and non-resident players. The revised agreement also includes a more defined explanation of the maintenance responsibilities for both parties and allows for better alignment between the city budget process and league seasons.

Council member Heidi Wilder said she didn’t feel right in approving the agreement without the parks board looking at the new information.

“I’m hesitant to approve until the parks board has had a chance to review it,” Wilder said.

Parks board members said they were eager to move forward with the agreement.

“I’ve felt like there has been a sense of negotiation and coming together on both sides,” Parks Board Member Greg Shaw said. “I’m ready to move forward.”
