Coliseum Fight

ColiseumOutsideThe fight between the City of Alexandria and the Parish Police Jury takes a turn over the Rapides Coliseum.  At issue now is the wording of a contract over a city parking lot that’s been put up for sale to the parish.

The parish has been trying to move forward with voter-approved renovations to the facility, but the city isn’t budging, mainly over parking.  However, representatives of the two sides say they will continue with negotiations to eventually move forward with the multi-million dollar project.
