STADIUM POLITICS ARE A TANGLED WEBB IN DENVER
Published September 7, 1995
Denver Mayor Wellington Webb has recommended funding only two-thirds of the work recommended by an engineering firm to repair Mile High Stadium, according to this morning's ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS. As a result, the Broncos "have seized the issue as part of their push for a new stadium." Webb's recommendation means that further maintenance on the stadium, built in '48, could lead to the possibility of the team charging the city with a breach of contract. The team has a lease with the city through 2018, but is pushing for a replacement for Mile High. The Broncos "are pitching a new stadium plan in which the club would put up some cash." As a part of that plan, the Broncos would like the 1/10 of a cent sales tax levied to build Coors Field to stay in place to help build a new Mile High when the Rockies' stadium is paid off after the turn of the century (Kevin Flynn, ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 9/7).
