Smokies Take Another Step Toward Exiting
Last night in Knoxville, the Knox County Commission voted unanimously to join an interlocal agreement with the Knoxville City Council and the City/County Sports Authority Board. The agreement now has to pass the entire Knoxville City Council which will be voting on that agreement tonight. If it passes tonight, that agreement would give the sports authority in Knoxville the power to issue bonds to help pay for a new multi-use stadium in the Old City part of downtown Knoxville. The main tenant of that stadium would be the Tennessee Smokies baseball team, currently housed at Smokies Stadium in Kodak off exit 407.
