Budget and Finance Committee votes 10-3 to approve the $275 million soccer stadium deal

After several hours of discussion and consideration of several amendment, the Budget and Finance Committee voted to approve the approve the $275 million soccer stadium deal by a vote of 10-3. Major concerns that the guarantee from the team owners was a weak guarantee with no individuals team owners responsible remains a very weak guarantee. The tea acres to be given to the team owners remains as part of the deal.

Those voting against the resolution were Councilmen John Cooper, Angie Henderson and Steve Glover.  Councilman Bob Mendes who had been critical of the deal now supports it and voted in favor.
