ORLANDO'S BASEBALL BID FACES TWO LOCAL VOTES TODAY
Published December 13, 1994
The dispute in Orlando over a proposed tax to support the construction of a stadium for a possible baseball expansion bid is close to settlement. The Ornage County Commission votes today to approve the tourism tax increase and how it will be allocated. The prospective owners of an Orlando baseball franchise want the revenue to be put toward stadium maintenance, while county officials "were reluctant to promise additional dollars for the project." On Monday, the county agreed to put a minimum amount of the revenue into a reserve account to pay for maintenance and improvements, with more funds available later. Both votes today are expected to pass, a day before Orlando officials make their presentation to the MLB expansion committee in Chicago (Marc Topkin, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 12/13).
