I just read the proposal from Sandy City regarding their public funding scheme for the Réal Sandy (Salt Lake?) soccer stadium. I really, honestly thought they'd come up with something better than this. They only managed to lower the county contribution from $87 million to $76 million. Really? Is that the best you could do?
And adding in Sandy City's miniscule contribution, the entire cost to taxpayers: $96.5 million!!
So, Sandy thought they could get people on board by saying this would just be a part of a 136-acre development... a new downtown at the south end of the valley. Is that what they thought?
I'm really shocked. It's mind boggling. I don't think Sandy is going to get the stadium with this deal.
