DADE COUNTY NOT TAKING ANY HEAT ON ARENA DEAL?
Published January 14, 1997
The Heat spent $3.7M last year to defeat a referendum against their new arena on Biscayne Bay, and now the team wants to count that money as part of the cost of building the arena, according to Don Finefrock in the MIAMI HERALD. Dade County, FL, "has said no, but the deal isn't final." But, Raul Masvidal, the county's negotiator on the arena deal, says "all major differences have been resolved," including whether to include the $3.7M in the cost of construction. Masvidal: "We said no. Plain and simple." The Heat have declined to confirm an agreement. Heat spokesperson Steve Watson: "We are still negotiating. ... We see that certainly as part of the project, we ought to share in those costs" (MIAMI HERALD, 1/14).
