SUBURBAN CLEVELAND OFFICIALS CALL FOR VOTE ON TAX EXTENSION
Published July 20, 1995
A coalition of suburban Cleveland officials is attempting to put "political pressure" on Cuyahoga County Commissioners to keep them from extending the sin tax on alcohol and cigarettes without a public vote, according to Stephen Koff in the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER. The tax was enacted in '90 to help fund the Gateway stadium project and if extended, would contribute $4.4M a year to the $154M renovation of Cleveland Stadium (PLAIN DEALER, 7/19). GATEWAY BLAME: In this week's CRAIN'S CLEVELAND BUSINESS, columnist Brian Tucker calls for the Cavaliers to "take the lead" in resolving the $28M deficit for the Gateway project. Tucker notes that it was cost overruns due to fast-tracking at the Gund Arena that contributed $22M to the debt (CRAIN'S CLEVELAND BUSINESS, 7/17-23 issue).
