TAMPA OFFICIALS AND DEVIL RAYS DECIDE TO JUST GET ALONG
Published October 17, 1997
Tampa city leaders "reluctantly agreed" on Thursday to split $7.2M in cost overruns with the Devil Rays in a move which ensured that work on Tropicana Field "will be completed on time," according to Sean Langell of the TAMPA TRIBUNE. The city and team also agreed "not to file lawsuits against one another," and decided that once work is complete, both parties will decide "mutually" whether to pursue litigation against the project's architect, construction manager or contractors. The two also agreed that the team "would not be liable" if additional overruns go beyond $7.2M, and if such overruns do occur, they "will negotiate a solution together" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 10/17).
