NO ROOM FOR STADIUM COST OVERRUNS IN MILWAUKEE
Published October 23, 1995
Planners of the Brewers new ballpark say construction will be done under an "absolute cost cap," according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. The construction cap is $250M, while the limit for site work is $72M. All parties involved say if "certain elements in the project turn out to cost more than expected, other elements will be scaled back to avoid blowing the caps." The Brewers affirmed they accept the caps and expect "neither the public sector nor the club itself to put in more money than they were committed to" (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/22).
