City Council still can’t come to agreement with Mandalay

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The City of Wilmington announced this afternoon in a news release that it still can’t come to an agreement with Mandalay Baseball Properties and the Atlanta Braves to build a baseball stadium.

That means council will not be able to vote on the proposal at Tuesday’s meeting, so it has pushed the vote back to September 18.
