First Slice 5/1/15: Reed and Fulton County Chairman butt heads over sale of Turner Field

Plus, Mayor Reed's business partner is the subject of a subpoena and more news.


Hold up, Mayor Reed. He says the city is ready to expedite the sale of post-Braves Turner Field. According to Reed, the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority can seal the deal without public bidding or the approval of the Atlanta City Council or the Fulton County Commission. Unsurprisingly, some officials, like Fulton County Chairman John Eaves, are not cool with that.
