Stadium News - Sort of

Really not much on the stadium front, but I can't see how this is going to help.

A top aide to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez, who has been the county's point man on negotiations over a new ballpark for the Florida Marlins, is heading to the private sector.

Ian Yorty, a former assistant county manager and tax collector, is becoming head of business development for a tax-collection and billing program owned by Grant Street Group.


Yorty could not immediately be reached on Monday. He has overseen ongoing discussion of building a new ballpark in or around downtown Miami

Hopefully Yorty wasn't the only one up to speed on the stadium deal, but if he was: it could delay the process by several months.  From my understanding the city will discuss, at minimum, on Thursday what contribution, if any, they are willing to make to the construction of the stadium.

We will soon know.
