WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- As the debate continues over whether to build a minor league baseball stadium in Wilmington, other cities tackle similar decisions. El Paso, TX, is the latest to decide to make the investment.

According to the El Paso Times, El Paso City Council voted today to spend $50 million on a downtown ballpark that would help bring a team from the AAA Pacific Coast League to the west Texas border town.

According to the newspaper, the 7,000-9,000-seat stadium would be financed with a two-cent increase in the city's hotel occupancy tax. Voters will vote on the tax hike in November. The Hotel Motel Association opposes the increase.
