BUCS OFFICIALS MEET WITH SUBURBAN ORLANDO, AREN'T SATISFIED
Published January 31, 1996
Bucs GM Rich McKay came away unsatisfied from a meeting with officials from Osceola County, located south of Orlando, about funding for a $200M stadium, according to this morning's TAMPA TRIBUNE. County Chair Charles Owen said he did not blame the Bucs for their dissatisfaction, and will work this weekend "and see if we can come up with something a little better" (Bill Fay, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/31). In Orlando, a group representing some Central FL hotels and attractions opposes any resort taxes for a stadium -- "regardless of cost." Meanwhile, the Central FL NFL Committee met and decided to pursue an NFL team for Orlando "at the right price." The committee is seeking to renovate the Citrus Bowl (Tim Turner, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 1/31).
