RENO, Nev. (AP) - The city of Reno has granted the Aces Ballpark its certificate of occupancy more than six years after the first game was played.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/1KQODiT ) that the ballpark’s developers had been denied the final certificate, which is a required document that shows the building is up to code and safe to operate, due to a dispute over the park’s property taxes.

During the standoff, the city issued a temporary certificate, which had expired.

The developers questioned whether Washoe County could legally charge the taxes under their development deal with the city. The dispute was settled in April when developers Herb Simon and Jerry and Stuart Katzoff agreed to pay back taxes of $1.9 million.
