CITIZENS FORM TASK FORCE TO DISCUSS NEW BUCS STADIUM
A citizens task force organized by the Greater Tampa Chamber
of Commerce met yesterday to discuss a new stadium for the Bucs.
The task force discussed ways to encourage local businesses to
purchase season tickets and luxury boxes and the need for a
public relations campaign if a referendum to raise taxes for
stadium funding occurs. Committee chair Leonard Levy: "If we
have to go to a voter referendum, we have to be prepared to sell
the community on the idea."
Bucs Trustee Steve Story said he met with NFL President Neil
Austrian and believes the sale to Malcom Glzer is "proceeding
smoothly" (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/25).
