City Rep Emma Acosta: You Go Girl, or Shut Your Pie Hole? [POLL]
Earlier this week City Rep Emma Acosta threatened to vote no on the Downtown ballpark unless the non-compete was removed and the 10-cent ticket surcharge was upped.
Sunday, MountainStar Sports, the group wanting to bring the Triple-A baseball team to town agreed to remove the non-compete clause and agreed to increase the ticket surcharge from $0.10 per ticket to $0.50 per ticket.
They also agreed to increase the base rent, and the parking fee by 10% every five years throughout the life of the lease to account for inflation over time.
But now Acosta has a new demand: She will not back the stadium lease contract at Tuesday’s City Council meeting unless voters get the chance to consider the stadium deal on November’s quality of life bond election.
