Pressure builds Miami Gardens makes stadium demands

Pressure is mounting in Miami Gardens over the proposed Sun Stadium deal as Mayor Gilbert issued strong demands to business and county leaders to help keep millions of dollars in revenue in his city. Gilbert is seeking to keep $1 million in annual property tax revenues Miami Gardens receives from the stadium. But that amount remains in jeopardy as county leaders consider transferring the stadium to tax exempt status in exchange for Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ efforts to privately fund $350 million renovations that includes adding a roof to the ageing structure.
