ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The president of the Blues says a lawsuit brought by St. Louis alderwoman Cara Spencer and others objecting to financing of Scottrade Center improvements has been dropped.
Chris Zimmerman made the announcement on Saturday’s Blues vs. Red Wings radio broadcast, “It’s great news for us, because that puts us now in the position we’d hoped to be doing in July, which is issuing the bonds to continue to do the work the city approved back in February.”
Zimmerman said no concessions were made to get the suit dropped.
The development caps a week in which city comptroller Darlene Green followed a judge’s order to sign-off on a financing agreement for the project.
He says in addition to building improvement already made, Scottrade Center patrons will see new seats being installed, as well as new escalators and more.
