BROWN'S SUGAR: BENGALS STADIUM DEAL GETS DONE AT DEADLINE
Published February 2, 1998
The Cincinnati City Council approved a deal with Hamilton County, OH, on Sunday on a Bengals stadium, "about 75 minutes after county commissioners passed the agreement," according to Goldberg, Hobson & May of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. The deal requires the city to transfer 12.5 acres of city-controlled land the county needs for stadium construction (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/1). Lucy May reported that county and team officials are still working to set a "guaranteed maximum price" for the facility. In the meantime, demolition of the site will continue in stages, with a large portion cleared by March (ENQUIRER, 1/31).
