TAXPAYERS MAY HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL IN ATLANTA
Published May 19, 1995
Taxpayers in Atlanta and Fulton County "may have to pay as much as $1 million this year because of the baseball strike's lingering impact on attendance," according to today's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Due to poor attendance, the losses in operating revenues at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium are already reportedly at $500,000 and all losses to the Atlanta-Fulton County Recreation Authority that aren't covered must be made up by Atlanta and Fulton County taxpayers. The Authority owns and operates the stadium (Hiskey and Pomerantz, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/19).
