STADIUM TASK FORCE IN CINCINNATI MAY DROP SOME OHIO COUNTIES
Published March 21, 1995
"Surprising several task force members," Regional Stadium Task Force Co-Chair Guy Guckenberger said yesterday that he "expects Cincinnati, Hamilton County and Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky to bear most of the cost for building or remodeling" stadiums for the Reds and Bengals. In doing this, several counties in Ohio would be left "out of the picture." Guckenberger: "I think there's a feeling that the closer you are to a downtown stadium, the more direct and greater the benefit and the more you contribute." KY state Sen. Joe Meyer, however, believes "it's not fair that some Southwest Ohio counties could be excluded but all of Nothern Kentucky would be asked to pay." Leaders of the task force "plan to pursue an 'interstate compact' that would unite metropolitan Cincinnati counties into one entity" (Richard Green, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 3/21).
