Vote Expected Tuesday on Biloxi Baseball Stadium
BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- The vote to finance construction of a minor league baseball stadium in downtown Biloxi is expected Tuesday after a public hearing and it's expected to be close. The state contributed a $15 million grant from BP to build the stadium. The council now must decide if the city should back a $21 million bond, which will be repaid with a $2 surcharge on every baseball ticket. That was increased from the proposed $1 extra charge to ensure it will cover the bond payment. Councilman Kenny Glavan tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/19n7myl ) all the council members have been encouraged to look at details of the final agreement before Tuesday's meeting.
