At the end of a WashTimes story describing the city's discussions over what to do with an expected surplus
coming out of the new baseball stadium
over the years (I know, it didn't make any sense to me, either), there was a brief update about the negotiations over the stadium lease agreement: "Several council sources said they are eyeing a possible vote on the lease at the body's next legislative meeting Feb. 7, but nothing has been scheduled. Council members met yesterday with the mayor's legislative aides to go over possible proposals, and members also are scheduled to meet with council attorneys Thursday." UPDATE: According to the AP
: "D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams told reporters Tuesday that he hopes to send a new stadium lease agreement to the council by the end of this week." Note that "sending to the council" and having the council vote on it are two different things.
