Manchester working on deal to keep NH Fisher Cats through 2035

MANCHESTER- The future of the Fisher Cats in Manchester was the focus of a city meeting Monday.

The Committee on Lands and Buildings heard a proposal from Art Solomon, owner of the Fisher Cats. Solomon wants the city to pay nearly $1 million up front for multiple repairs at the stadium including drainage from the field and the fire suppression system.

In exchange, the team vows to stay in Manchester through 2035 and voluntarily kick in $65,000 more annually than it already does into the capital reserve fund.

“This would be a one-time fix, we wouldn't come back to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen again for something like this this is a one-time fix to take care of what should've been done at the initial construction,” Solomon said.

The Fisher Cats and City Finance Director will work together on a draft agreement to bring back to the committee in January.
