STADIUM NOTES: DETROIT VOTERS GET TWO BALLOT QUESTIONS
Published January 10, 1996
Fans of the old Tiger Stadium were able to gather 8,067 signatures and have added a question to the March 19 ballot on whether the city should use $35M of city money to build a new stadium. The group was allowed to word their question, with possible confusion looming for voters. The Tiger Fan Club's question includes a double negative -- with a "yes" vote meaning not using city money for the new stadium (DETROIT NEWS, 1/10)....Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell envisions a Camden Yards model for building a new stadium in Philadelphia: "I'd recommend going through the state Sports Authority, which can write bonds, and have a sports lottery" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 1/7)....The Lightning have warned Hillsborough County officials that any extra tax on tickets or concessions would violate their lease at the new Ice Palace. The TSA wants to impose a tax to help fund a new stadium for the Bucs (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/10).
