ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - What’s the mood at the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission regarding dome lease negotiations with the Rams?
CVC president Kitty Ratcliffe says the goal remains to keep the NFL team in town, with a package that makes sense for the community. She says any new sources of public funding would require approval by taxpayers, “I think we can make that happen if the Rams really want to stay in St. Louis. Ultimately, that’s what it’s all about. Do they want to be here or not want to be here?”
Ratcliffe says the CVC acted quickly to fill the dome vacancy in October when the Rams are shifting a home game to England.
She says Herbalife will be bringing a convention of 17,000 to St. Louis and wants to use half the dome floor that weekend.
Ratcliffe was a guest on KMOX’s Hancock and Kelley Show on Friday.
