MARINERS WANT ANSWER ON STADIUM PLAN; MAY NEED TIME TO SELL
Published July 12, 1995
The Mariners say they need to know what is going to happen about financing a new stadium, as team officials want time to sell the team in the off-season if there is not going to be a deal, according to the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER. Rebecca Boren writes that the King County Council's deadline for putting a measure on the September 19 primary ballot is July 24. Council members say they want another agency to agree to pay for cost overruns, a promise of swift permit approvals by the city of Seattle, and an agreement that the city and state underwrite the stadium bonds before putting a measure to raise the sales tax 1/10 of 1% on the ballot (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 7/11).
