Reno, Nev (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Reno City Council voted 4-3 Wednesday night to move forward with a refinancing plan for the Aces baseball stadium.
Councilmembers Jessica Sferrazza, Dwight Dortch, and Sharon Zadra voted no.
The plan calls for a 30-year, $1 million dollar yearly payment from the city general fund.
Councilwoman Jessica Sferrazza said during the meeting that the city council made a promise to the public several years ago, that general fund money would not be used for the baseball stadium.
On the other side of the argument, Councilman Dave Aiazzi questioned what would happen if the owners of the Aces team were to leave Reno. There are concerns the baseball franchise could leave the city if a refinancing deal is not agreed upon.
Mayor Bob Cashell was the key fourth vote Wednesday night. He called into the meeting from home where he is recovering from heart surgery.
A final vote is expected on November 7.
