LIGHTNING BOSS SAYS THEY'RE "CLOSE" ON ARENA FINANCING
Published July 27, 1995
Hillsborough County Commissioners have voted 5-1 to approve a new lease with the Lightning, "one that will allow them to go the bond market Thursday," according to Joe Henderson of the TAMPA TRIBUNE. Lightning Governor David LeFevre said that "if all goes well," the team will "close in on the financing in about 10 days." The adjusted lease "bows" to NHL bylaws prohibiting governments from suing if the league orders the team moved under a "disaster clause" -- including attendance for two straight seasons less than 80% of the league average 15,500 (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 7/27).
