FIRST ON 3: Wilmington City Manager hugely exaggerating baseball stadium petition ballot cost

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Tuesday night, members of the Wilmington City Council will talk baseball once again. One item on the agenda is how much it will cost to put Ben McCoy and Josh Fulton's anti-tax based baseball stadium petition on the general election ballot.

In his proposal to the council, Wilmington City Manager Sterling Cheatham writes, "Additionally, funding in the amount of $40,000 is also being included to cover the cost of putting the stadium question on the ballot in the general election as dictated by the petition in FY 2013, if the Council so desires."

However, New Hanover County Board of Elections Director Marvin McFadyen says if the city wants to put the petition on the November general election ballot, it would cost more like $1,000.
