OFFICIALS ASSEMBLE PACKAGE TO COMPLETE ST. PETE RENOVATIONS
Published October 14, 1997
St. Petersburg officials have put together a $7.2M package to ensure Tropicana Field renovations are completed by a March 1 construction deadline, according to David Rogers in the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. The move comes as the "renovation to prepare" Tropicana Field for MLB "is being threatened by cost overruns and increasingly bitter disputes among" project architects, contractors and the Devil Rays. In addition to the "cash infusion, the package is designed to keep the project moving ahead." No fault will be determined "until the end of the project, when a mediator will review disputes" (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 10/11).
