UNCERTAINTY ABOUT CLEVELAND STADIUM CONTINUES
Published February 15, 1995
The Cleveland City Council Monday "asserted its dominion" over three groups who are trying to determine how to pay for renovations for Cleveland Stadium. The council warned the three groups -- the Browns, Mayor Michael White, and a "committee of corporate bigwigs" -- "that as long as the city owns the stadium," the council will be the only one who will decide "how and whether to renovate to keep the Browns." While many council members support renovation, they said "they must view the project in a broader context" including the need to support schools, neighborhoods and other services (Stephen Koff, Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 2/14).
