Indy’s new stadium

During this Sunday’s Browns-Colts game, you’ll probably hear a lot of talk about the Colts’ new stadium, which broke ground yesterday…a retractable roof, 63,000 capacity, multiple use facility. How’s it paid for?

Taxpayers in Central Indiana will pay for most of the project through tax increases. Marion County increased its hotel, car rental, and food-and-beverage taxes. Also, Hamilton, Boone, Hendricks, Johnson, Shelby and Hancock counties voted to increase their food-and-beverage taxes to help pay for it. The Colts will kick in $100 million.

I think it’ll be cool to see the Colts play outdoors at home…I move they keep that dome open in winter.
