There’s no guarantee that Fair Park will get the full 20% of funding over 30 years if the proposition passes in November. While the Dallas City Council in April approved allowing the Cotton Bowl, Coliseum, Music Hall, the Band Shell, Automobile Building and Centennial Building to be eligible for money from the tax increase, the resolution is nonbinding.
The resolution has a clause that orders the city, pending voter approval, to “use good faith efforts to spend 20% of the revenues derived from the new 2% hotel occupancy tax for the Fair Park facilities listed in the proposition.”
Johnson said Thursday that he wasn’t sure how much the current council could bind the actions of future councils, but said the intent of the government body would be that all the money be used.
