City, Predators close in on deal
Mayor Karl Dean made comments to Metro Council members today that may put Nashville Predators fans at ease on the team's future and acquisition by the local group.
During this morning's Metropolitan Council Policy Seminar at Vanderbilt University, Dean addressed the issue of concessions on the Sommet Center to help the local buyers acquire the team. He told Council members that "we have made a lot of progress in the last few days" and "we are close." He added that he hopes to make an announcement soon.
