“…The City Council agreed on Tuesday, Jan. 15 to extend Anaheim’s stadium lease with the Angels to give more time for negotiating, though some members would have felt better about the decision if the team offered to put Anaheim on its jersey or promised to only negotiate with the city.
Last week, Mayor Harry Sidhu announced the proposed extension, saying that from his conversation with Angels owner Arte Moreno, “It is clear the team’s priority is to stay in Anahiem.”
…City spokesman Mike Lyster said City Hall will take the next couple of months to formalize its negotiating team and should be talking with team representatives by the spring with the hope of progress by year’s end.”
