Oakland Coliseum JPA Livestream For July 27th Meeting – Raiders Lease
The meeting was marked by a discussion of how much money the Coliseum was making. Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty was insistent that the financial report did not show all of the monies made over the last fiscal year. It made for a tense moment and a promise to issue a revised report.
Also, the XFL in Oakland Matter his a snag because the Coliseum could not work out a agreement with the Oakland A’s on dates. Coliseum JPA Executive Director Scott McKibben said that he approached Cal Berkeley about having XFL games there. This is still an open and unresolved matter.
Then there is the Alameda County Grand Jury Ticket Scandal. The Coliseum JPA believes that the Grand Jury is taking a stance that Supervisor Haggerty described as “subjective”. That said, the decision was to form a committee that consists of four of the JPA Commissioners and two outside representatives.
The Raiders lease matter is still up in the air. No report was made. That means the deadline for a lease extension that was July 30th will be overran. And into September before any signature happens. More on this soon.
More on this but please watch the livestream.
