Good news for the Oakland Athletics, as the Oakland City Council on Tuesday night voted against putting a measure on the November ballot for residents to vote on whether to use public funds to pay for a new waterfront ballpark at Howard Terminal.

The council voted 5 to 2 in favor of not putting a measure on the ballot and was reached after 11 hours of debate, according to NBC Bay Area.

Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf posted a statement to social media to thank the council people who voted against putting the measure on the ballot, which would have held up plans for a new ballpark.
