When the North Port Huskys youth football program concludes its practice season on the outfield of the large baseball diamond in Butler Park in North Port this fall, Sarasota County and the city of North Port may split the difference in the cost to repair the field for baseball season.

Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson — who, along with North Port City Commissioner Jim Blucher, other city and county staff members and Huskys officials attended a meeting at the Morgan Family Community Center to hash out details to help get the Huskys a place to practice and play — made a suggestion Wednesday to her fellow commissioners that the county and city each pay half of the maintenance cost. The county has an agreement that covers the first $5,000 of outside routine field maintenance per park.
