Frequently Asked Questions - Q40


Question:

How will this proposed city charter amendment affect the City’s future participation in professional sports facilities and joint ventures with other governmental entities such as downtown bayou beautification?

Answer:

The City will be able to engage in such activities so long as the total revenue cap is not exceeded. If such activities will cause the cap to be exceeded, then the City will have to obtain advance voter approval. The amendment will thus furnish voters a place at the table in deciding priorities between such choices as a need for more fire fighters per truck versus helping fund sports palaces for rich owners and athletes.
