CLEVELAND'S WHITE SAYS PRICE MAY GO UP; BUT ONLY FOR BROWNS
Published January 22, 1998
In his first public comments on the new Browns stadium "in four months," Cleveland Mayor Michael White "seemed to acknowledge that cost overruns on the publicly financed stadium project appear likely," according to David Adams of the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL. White: "Is there a possibility that we have to develop strategies to deal with an overrun? Yes there is. ... Do we know today how large that overrun will be or what the source of the fix will be? No, we don't." After rejecting the lowest bid for the stadium's electrical work late last year, which was $9M more "than expected," White "seemed to indicate that the new round of electrical bids -- starting next month -- may not fare much better" (David Adams, AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 1/22).
