WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington City Council meet Tuesday night on the agenda a presentation on the Convention Center presented by General Manager Susan Eaton displaying awards and announcing business increases with 113 events in the past year, the convention center is on track to keep growing in 2013.
The biggest issue, baseball was not on the agenda, due to the city not having an agreement with Mandalay and the Braves. Councilman Kevin O’Grady says that does not mean the deal isn’t progressing.
“Our lawyers have been working with the baseball lawyers over the past four weeks to try and resolve a couple of remaining items.” Councilman O’Grady told us. “ I understand we now have gotten a counter offer from baseball with provisions, we haven’t seen it yet. We need to see it, and we need to discuss it.”
And with that the city council was off to private discussions in closed session.
