UPDATE: Could price tag be too high for minor league stadium in Franklin?

The update.

Though I wouldn’t object to a small and reasonable amount of property tax funding to support this project, using no levy money is the preferred option. There has to be a way of executing this project without using property taxes.

The stadium has tremendous potential only if Franklin does it right. Past economic development history would indicate it won’t. However, a new mayor and changes at the Common Council provide some hope a good deal can be arranged.
