Stadium News - Sort of

The stadium vote has been moved up a week.

Sarah Talalay reports.

The city and Miami-Dade County are trying to oblige. The city has scheduled to continue its meeting at 9 a.m. March 4, when presumably Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones, who is on maternity leave, will be able to attend.

The county commission, meanwhile, will consider the stadium deal at a meeting at 9:30 a.m. on March 5. The team wanted to avoid what happened Friday – dozens of people waiting for the county meeting, which was scheduled to start at 1 p.m., while proceedings dragged on without resolution at the city commission meeting.

Not sure the one week savings in time will mean that much, but I guess it is something.

 So on March 4, we will try it again and hopefully this time the Marlins friendly city commissioners will pass the deal.

 Then onto the county.
