Question for the CIB: What happened to the RCA Dome money?

This property belongs to the People, not the CIB !

Take a look at Indy Tax Dollars to see the many unanswered taxpayer questions regarding where our stadium monies went. Apparently, but not surprisingly, there is little to no accountability to those of us who OWN the damned thing.
And don't forget, no one has yet budgeted the $10 MILLION PER YEAR it will take to operate the new stadium. That expense should not be on the backs of taxpayers but paid by the people who USE the building...ticket holders and the organizations who book the building for events. So raise the prices for conventions. If Irsay, Peterson, Fred Glass, the CIB, and the cronies at the Stadium Authority cut us a good deal, we should be priced favorably with other cities with huge stadiums like this.
Or better yet, let Ir$ay pay the operating costs because he's the person that demanded the building in the first place and certainly can afford it.

Since this blog is also discussing arts funding and the city budget shortfall, there is something you should know.

The CIB gives a lot of money to the arts council. Someone should start pulling the threads with those relationships.

My advice is follow the money.
