This article reports that Anthony Williams, mayor of District of Columbia, plans to discuss the lease covering the proposed bond-financed ballpark for the Washington Nationals during the District Council's meeting on February 7, 2006. It is not clear whether a compromise on the lease is near. However, Williams' aides had not acknowledged that the item would be on the agenda for the meeting. The sale of $535 million in stadium bonds and the start of construction of the sports facility had to be postponed after the council could not approve the team's lease for the ballpark by a December 31, 2005, deadline.
