BUCS STADIUM ISSUE CLOSE AS CONTROL ISSUE REPORTEDLY SETTLED
Published March 21, 1996
Tampa officials have reportedly agreed to give the Bucs control over operation and maintenance of a planned $168M new stadium, according to today's TAMPA TRIBUNE. The Tampa Stadium Authority's role in a new stadium "may be substantially reduced" pending further approval from the Tampa City Council and the Hillsborough County Commission. This issue was seen as the "last major hang-up" to a new stadium deal. Tampa Mayor Dick Greco said "no major issues remain unresolved between city and county officials and the Bucs." Some officials fear Bucs control of a new stadium "could hurt" efforts to attract other tenants. The Bucs also have asked for all revenue from advertising at the stadium for all events (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/21).
