Dear Vice Mayor and Members of the Metropolitan Council:
Pursuant to Section 3.04 of the Metropolitan Charter, I am calling a special meeting of the Metropolitan Council at 3:30 PM on Tuesday, December 16, 2008.
In order for the Nashville Sounds to be able to play games in Nashville during 2009, the current lease on Greer stadium must be assigned and amended to lengthen the term before December 31, 2008. The current lease may be extended with your approval of a Resolution. A copy of the proposed lease will be filed today with the Council. A copy will be sent to each of you. The consideration of the lease will be the sole business at the special meeting.
