Rochester, N.Y. – It’s a done deal. The Monroe County Legislature approved a long-term lease for the Red Wings at Frontier Field Tuesday night.

Lawmakers were under deadline to make it official. The International League said, without a lease by March 1, home games would be moved to another city.

The legislature also approved a new collective bargaining agreement for nearly 450 jail and civil deputies serving in the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

A new labor agreement was also approved for airport firefighters.
