Alberton town council has agreed to waive field costs so one or two under-11 baseball teams can hold weekly practices and games on Alberton's Veterans Memorial Field.
Council received an inquiry from the West Prince Ball Association about the cost of using the field, council hard at a recent meeting.
Coun. Kelly Williams said the field has received extensive upgrades but is not utilized to its potential. She said she’d like to see the children playing ball in town.
“It’s economic development’s what it is,” said Coun. Blair Duggan. “If we’re bringing teams in here, the town’s going to make money off of it.”
Duggan said the lime for marking the field would be the only cost.
Williams received council endorsement on a motion to cover the field costs for this year.
