has already posted a version of tomorrow's stadium story, "Mayor Insists Stadium Costs Will Not Rise
" (changed to "Williams Dismisses Stadium Estimate" in Wednesday's print version), which quotes Mayor Bowtie as saying, "Under no circumstances will this stadium cost $700 million," and that the reports of that pricetag were misleading, the result of misinformation perpetuated by stadium opponents "who have been against this deal from day one." (Gee, I wonder who that could be?) More: "Williams acknowledged that the stadium project budget does not contain money for ancillary costs such as improvements to a nearby Metro station and roads, an underground parking structure, bond financing fees and other potential costs. [...] 'I never believed these costs should be borne completely by the baseball stadium budget,' Williams said. 'They never have been borne completely by other cities with stadiums.' But several council members said they approved the $535 million budget with the expectation that the figure included money for roads, Metro and bond financing."
