Fredericksburg council approves $50,000 to evaluate baseball proposal
Fredericksburg City Council just approved spending $50,000 to hire experts to evaluate the proposal to bring a minor league baseball team here.
The money will come from contingency funds in this year’s budget.
City Manager Bev Cameron requested the money.
The vote was unanimous following a motion by Councilman Matt Kelly. He was the only person who commented prior to the vote.
He thanked Cameron for placing the item on the agenda so people can see the expenses associated with this project and asked that the practice be followed with all city projects.
