3 Later this morning - the city council is meeting to discuss how much money to spend on the scoreboards at EverBank Field. There's a push to make them the LARGEST in the world. Channel 4's Erica Rakow joins us LIVE from EverBank Field - Erica, the price tag is pretty hefty ... 63-million dollars ... 3 3 AND THE PRICE TAG IS SOMETHING THE COUNCIL WILL CLOSELY CONSIDER THIS MORNING.. WE SPENT MILLIONS ON THE SCOREBOARD IN 2005 FOR THE SUPERBOWL.. NOW THE JAGS WANT THE CITY TO SPEND MILLIONS MORE .. BUT ON STATE OF THE ART VIDEO SCOREBOARDS. 3 0-5:09-:16:49-:551:31-1:34IT'S A BIG IDEA.. 52 FEET HIGH AND 348 FEET WIDE.. VIDEO SCOREBOARDS THAT WOULD TRUMP ANY OTHER IN THE WORLD.02-06 6P PKG JAGS VIDEO BOARDS //RICHARD CLARK/CITY COUNCIL MEMBER It's clearly needed / If you go there and see the board and go to other stadiums and see what they look like and how revenue is generated and its not just the jaguars. It's the gator bowl and any other event that we hold there.. You are going to have to modernize if you are going to stay competitive in other market placesHOW TO PAY FOR THE SCOREBOARDS IS WHAT'S UP FOR DEBATE..) LAST MONTH, MAYOR BROWN PLEDGED 43-MILLION- DOLLARS IN TAX REVENUE TO HELP WITH THE PROJECT.THE JAGUARS ARE COMMITTING 20-MILLION DOLLARS OF THEIR MONEY.BROWN SAYS THE MONEY WILL COME FROM EXISTING REVENUE AND WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON THE CITY'S BUDGET. THE MONEY WOULD COME FROM A TWO PERCENT CHARGE ON HOTEL GUESTS THAT HAS BEEN SET ASIDE FOR THE STADIUM.02-06 6P PKG JAGS VIDEO BOARDS // MARK LAMPING/JAGUARS PRESIDENT But its the investment that can make the biggest difference right away and that is why we really believe taking everbank field to the lead in the national football league on all stadiums in the country will finally give us something where we are the best.And it will be a distinctive part of this facility that not only befits are fans but it something people want to see and it will become a destination ) THE RENOVATION WOULD INCLUDE NEW SCOREBOARDS IN EACH END ZONE.. A NEW SCOREBOARD CONTROL ROOM.. AND A NEW PLATFORM IN THE NORTH END ZONE WHERE YOU CAN BUY FOOD AND DRINKS.FANS SAY ANYTHING THAT WOULD HELP IMPROVE THE TEAM AND DRAW PEOPLE TO JAGS GAMES IS WORTH MONEY.02-06 6P PKG JAGS VIDEO BOARDS // VICKI MILLIER/FAN Yeah I think the city should.If we can get our Jags going again thats a good draw.. 3 IF THE COUNCIL APPROVES THE FUNDING, CONSTRUCTION WOULD BEGIN IN JANUARY AND FINISH IN JULY MAKING IT READY FOR NEXT FOOTBALL SEASON.JAGS OWNER SHAD KHAN IS EXPECTED TO BE AT THE MEETING THIS MORNING WHICH BEGINS AT 9.
