Vote on baseball stadium bonds could come next week

BILOXI — The Biloxi Council is expected to vote next Tuesday whether to issue $21 million in bonds to build a minor league baseball stadium.

The Sun Herald reports the council tabled a resolution this week to accept a $15-million grant from the state until next week’s meeting at 6 p.m.

The council also tabled until Tuesday hiring Dale Partners Architects.

City attorney Michael Collins said the architects have been working for a year on the stadium without a contract.

A group led by Ken Young bought the Class AA Huntsville Stars and the team will move to Biloxi when the stadium opens in 2015.
