CHICAGO (CBS) — Staff from the mayor’s office and executives with the Chicago Cubs held a meeting Monday on plans to renovate Wrigley Field.
Cubs boss Tom Ricketts set April 1 as a deadline to reach a deal on proposed improvements to the historic but aging ball park. The meeting ended without an agreement. However, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said today that he never set a deadline and that he believed a deal will be reached.
A Cubs spokesman told CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley the deadline isn’t as important as the fact that the parties are still talking.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s staff had discussions with Cubs’ front office personnel and Ald. Tom Tunney at City Hall this afternoon.
A Cubs spokesman said the team was “hoping for good results.”
