TROUBLE CONTINUES IN DALLAS AS CITY COUNCIL MEETS
Published March 3, 1995
In a "volatile" Dallas City Council meeting Wednesday, members learned the city has reportedly offered Mavericks Owner Don Carter $12.9M in "bond funds left over from earlier bond projects." This "surprised" many arena opponents because city officials have consistently said taxpayers' money "would not be used on the arena project." According to City Manager Ted Benavides, the bond money "would be used for infrastructure improvements" at the proposed site, southeast of Reunion Arena. Later in the meeting, council members "resoundingly rejected" a proposal to place a nonbinding referendum on the May 6 ballot that would have asked voters "whether the city should build a new arena" (Sylvia Martinez, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/2).
