Bengals Offer To Make Lease Concessions To Help In Stadium Renovations

Today’s Cincy Enquirer reports that the Bengals are offering to make financial concessions on their PBS lease:

The Bengals are offering to make short- and long-term financial concessions on their Paul Brown Stadium lease to help alleviate the predicted shortfall in the Hamilton County stadium fund, a move that could end years of bitter legal wrangling between the team and county. In a letter written Oct. 16 by the Bengals to county Administrator Patrick Thompson, the club is offering to relieve the county of $2 million worth of capital repairs to the stadium, which opened in 2000. According to the letter, acquired Sunday night by The Enquirer, the Bengals would pay to replace carpet inside the stadium’s club level area, convert to an electronic ticketing system and put in a new playing field which would have been the county’s responsibility under current lease terms. “Recognizing the history and current economic climate, we will try to play a role in an effort to help build an improved relationship between the two organizations (the club and the county) that can better serve our community,” Bengals vice president Troy A. Blackburn wrote to Thompson.
