RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- The Richmond City Council will hold a meeting Monday night.
The council will review several issues, including a decision over a new ball park. It is expected to make a decision on buying the The Diamond property, owned by the Richmond Metropolitan Authority.
If bought, the city would lease it back to the company for $1 a month, until it figures out where a new stadium will be located.
The City Council will also vote on an ordinance recognizing same-sex marriages. The legislation is symbolic, because Virginia does not recognize gay marriages.
If the Commonwealth does make the change, Richmond would be able to grant marriage benefits to gay city employees.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
