Facilities Venues

          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).
