The Oxnard City Council has approved an agreement for the Los Angeles Rams to use the city-owned River Ridge Fields for the team's spring practices.

The lease agreement calls for the Rams to use the fields for $510 per day from April 8 to June 17, which amounts to $31,110. The team will also lease the locker rooms for $680 per day from March 28 through June 24, which amounts to $59,840.

The team will provide maintenance, staff and other equipment. The city will provide utilities, up to $1,500 per month, and water costs.

The River Ridge Fields are located adjacent to a Residence Inn by Marriott, where the Ram players are expected to stay during the practices and the team will conduct meetings.

The Rams still need a site for their summer training camp. The Dallas Cowboys are in the second year of a three-year agreement to use the River Ridge Fields.
