County takes up stadium management




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Hamilton County commissioners will review a proposal today that would allow the Cincinnati Bengals' company, Paul Brown Stadium Ltd., to manage the daily operations at the $450 million facility.

        The team and county had worked out a preliminary agreement that would have guaranteed the Bengals the right to manage the stadium.

        But when the team would not agree to go through a public bidding process when hiring personnel or buying goods and services, the county opened the job to other bidders.

        The Bengals sued, and the two sides have been negotiating for about two weeks.

        Stadium management includes just about everything associated with running the stadium, from security and painting to groundskeeping and window washing.
