Legion Field scoreboard

I think it's a nice gesture to rejuvenate the stadium with a $400,000 plan, but I don't agree with it at this point. Legion Field has nice scoreboards and Birmingham has a $77 million dollar debt. William Bell said he was cutting other  programs to save money to pay off the debt. Now he buys a scoreboard as part of  a $400,000 layout for Legion Field. I thought councilwoman Carol Smitherman had a very good point when she said we should wait and see how the Fedcup tennis goes and then the Indy Car racing at Barber before we start spending more money on Legion Field and a scoreboard. That sounds reasonable and very responsible to me. The city really needs to work on this debt. It's not going to just go away. Legion Field can wait. The Papa Johns Bowl, The SWAC championship game and the Magic City Classic will be fine. They can eventually do some renovations to the stadium, but let's see how these upcoming events do before making a decision to buy a scoreboard and renovate Legion Field.
