Fredericksburg council moves up meeting times for July 9 but stadium issue will be last

Fredericksburg City Council just agreed to move up the times for its July 9 meeting out of concern for a series of  public hearings scheduled for that night including one on a proposed multipurpose stadium.

The Hagerstown Suns, a Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, have expressed interest in relocating from Maryland to Fredericksburg. A stadium would need to be built for the team and council is evaluating the proposal and the costs associated with it.

Council’s July 9 meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. The public hearings will begin at 7 p.m. with the stadium issue coming up last.
