12:01 pm
future of the oakland a's is being decided right now. will they stay with a new stadium in oakland? or will they leave for another city? oakland city council, the ace appear to be at odds over how to move forward with plans for a new ballpark it howard terminal, ktvu sally rasmus says. been listening into the meeting underway right now brings us an update here live in oakland. well, frank, that meeting started at nine o'clock this morning. there were two hours of public comment and then a presentation from city staff. and just in the last half hour, we've heard some of the first comments from oakland city council members about this term sheet. that's the basic framework that they would be voting on today on how and how to fund and finance a ballpark and development here at the howard terminal. in oakland, based on some of the comments from oakland city council members and some of the comments from aids president dave cavill. it appears that the city and the team are at an impasse. it's very uncertain whether they will vote on and approve this term sheet today, but this follows again two
12:02 pm
hours of public comment when people in oakland weighed in. in nearly two hours of public comment. oakland ear's had strong feelings about the plan, both for the current term sheet. if the is leave, hundreds of workers will lose their jobs, losing three professional sports teams within a span of five years. is nothing to be proud of. don't make a generation of kids relegate. they raised jerseys to the closet two and against it, the ultimate costs are going to be at least three times greater call their bluff and keep the a's at the coliseum. the a's are like an abusive boyfriend, and you need to stand up them. how much are you going to just like? do what they want the 35,000 seat ballpark itself would be privately financed by the a'sllt pick up the costs for site and infrastructure surrounding the development and a report to the city council at their meeting this morning, city administrators say the
12:03 pm
cost for off site infrastructure is about 352 million. the a's won't pay for it. still city administrators recommend the city approved the term sheet to at least move the deal forward and continue negotiating with the a's. it really represents a once in a generation opportunity to transform and enhance part of the city's downtown while providing significant benefits to our communities. oakland city council president rebecca kaplan offered an amended a term sheet with some provisions that would allow the city and the a's to seek state and federal funding to pay for some of those infrastructure costs. but as president dave cavil said that that was the first time that he and the a's had seen some of those amendments and they couldn't agree to it there on the spot. so again, it appears the oakland city council and the a's are at an impasse here on how to move forward with the howard terminal ballpark idea. and framework. we'll be continuing to cover this story and monitor
