KINGDOME REPAIRS APPROACH $50 MILLION
Published November 11, 1994
King County officials confirmed yesterday that Kingdome emergency repairs could run as much as $15M over budget, which would bring the cost of the project up to $47.5M. King County Exec Gary Locke said officials are considering a possible ticket tax or fee on Kingdome events to pay for the excess costs. Earlier this week, the county sued its insurance carrier on the Kingdome, Allendale Mutual Insurance, alleging the firm refused to acknowledge the county's damage claims (SEATTLE POST- INTELLIGENCER, 11/11).
