BUCS VOTE IS ON, BUT ARE THERE NEW LEASE PROBLEMS?
Published August 27, 1996
Hillsborough Circuit Court Judge James Whittemore ruled a lawsuit by former Tampa Mayor William Poe Sr. to block a half- cent tax from going on the September 3 ballot was "without merit," according to Joe Henderson of the TAMPA TRIBUNE. Voters will vote on the half-cent sales tax increase, designed to help fund a new Bucs stadium (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/27). The Yankees, who use land adjacent to Houlihan's Stadium for parking at Legends Field during spring games, have objected to some of that land being promised to Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer for commercial development if a new facility is built. The question of who controls the land is becoming "increasingly contentious," and could be a "roadblock" to finishing a lease on the stadium (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/27).
