Mayor: NBA Labor Woes Delayed Arena Talks/Council Vote

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Mayor Johnson had set the city council meeting of December 13th  as the day he wanted a vote on the funding, revenue sharing, and construction details of a $387 Million project.  But because the NBA's focus has been more on labor talks than arena talks, Johnson expects some parts of the project won't be ready until January.

JOHNSON: "We should have hopefully a constant laid out with a financing plan and all the particulars in place.  I've again talked with the commissioner once, have a call set again this week."

Johnson hopes a couple of key components can be voted on in two weeks.  He says the delay will not push any votes close to the drop-dead date of March 1st.  That is when the Kings owners, the Maloofs could file with the NBA to move the team to Anaheim, if a Sacramento arena deal isn't finalized.
