CLEVELAND MAYOR OFFERS FOURTH STADIUM PLAN IN AS MANY WEEKS

     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).
