The Dyster administration is back at it again, trying to find an operator for Sal Maglie Stadium. The mayor’s first pass at landing a manager and promoter for the historic, but dilapidated, sports facility didn’t go so well and the Reporter wrote at length about it last year. At that time Dyster’s non-transparent designs for Sal Maglie sank like a stone as the mayor’s preferred stadium pro-moter withdrew his proposal.
Two weeks ago we wrote a column regarding the mayor’s newly announced Request for Proposals for the stadium. That column noted that while the stadium was currently on the RFP table, we be-lieved it was time for the council and mayor to immediately reveal and report on all of the costs and contractual ins and outs of the ice pavilion. We think the residents who are footing the bill for a $http://southbuffalonews.com4 million ice pavilion renovation that was supposed to cost $4 million deserve a full account-ing of what’s on ice over there on Robbins Drive. So far the silence on a full reveal of the ice pavil-ion unending renovation has been deafening. Neither mayor nor council nor the law department are saying a word.
