DO OIL AND WATER MIX? NASHVILLE RESIDENTS SAY YES
Published February 21, 1996
A poll in the Nashville TENNESSEAN shows that the deal to finance the Oilers' move has support among Davidson County voters. In Houston, John Williams reports that 53% of Nashville- area residents approve of a plan to raise the city's share of $140M for a new Oilers stadium through water and sewer fees, while 34% oppose. However, 58% said they would want a referendum. Meanwhile, the TN House Finance Committee approved a bill Tuesday to pay for the state's $80M portion. The Nashville Metro Council will likely vote February 27 on whether to finance the city's obligation through water and sewer fees (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 2/21).
