CLEVELAND MAYOR OFFERS FOURTH STADIUM PLAN IN AS MANY WEEKS
Published June 5, 1995
Cleveland Mayor Michael White has offered what he calls a "compromise" plan for the renovation of Cleveland Municipal Stadium, according to the Cleveland PLAIN-DEALER. White's plan calls for a 10% tax on paid off-street parking and an extension of Cuyahoga County's "sin tax" on cigarettes and alcohol. The plan also call for a "sin tax" extension to pay for the overruns at the Gateway sports complex. Koff and Theiss note that while the plan is admittedly full of "financial uncertainties," White is anxious to move forward so as to not risk losing the Browns to another city. White hopes to have legislative approval by September 1 (Koff & Theiss, Cleveland PLAIN-DEALER, 6/2).
