BILOXI — An economic analysis of the potential impact of a downtown minor league baseball stadium is expected to be presented at Tuesday’s Biloxi City Council meeting.
The Sun Herald reports Ron Peresich, an attorney representing Biloxi, has notified council members Johnson Consulting should have the study ready by Monday and will make a presentation at the meeting, which will begin at 1:30 p.m. at City Hall.
The council authorized spending up to $25,000 for the study and the administration hired Johnson Consulting, which is based in Chicago and has advised Jackson and cities in Florida and Missouri about the impact of baseball.
The company has also done work for the Biloxi Housing Authority and researched the downtown Biloxi area.
