DEVIL RAYS FACE "MOST IMPORTANT DAY" IN DOME PROCESS
Published May 8, 1995
The $20M that the Devil Rays need to make the ThunderDome a "major league facility" will be voted on tomorrow by the Pinellas County Commission and the St. Petersburg City Council. The Pinellas group is scheduled to choose between two plans, "both involving an increase in a tax paid by guests at hotels and motels, to come up with $14-million or $15-million." St. Pete "will likely come up with the rest." The city, however, has not said where it will find the money (Ned Seaton, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 5/8).
