Marlins Get Last $42 Million From Miami-Dade County
Based on what happened at yesterday's Miami-Dade County Commission meeting, there is no way the taxpayers are getting their money back. Let's face it, folks: The county is not going to sue or cut off the Marlins at this point, which is why county commissioners approved issuing $42 million in bonds to complete financing for the $515 million stadium. Had the county refused to release the final installment, Miami-Dade would be on the hook for any cost overruns caused by delaying the $42 million, according to Mayor Carlos Gimenez's explanation to commissioners.
