Council considers Cajundome subsidy increase

LAFAYETTE - The Lafayette City-Parish Council is considering an increased subsidy to the Cajundome.

The council this week briefly discussed City-Parish President Joey Durel's proposed $550,000 allocation to the Cajundome for the upcoming fiscal year, which marks a $50,000 increase from the current fiscal year.

The Cajundome subsidy has come under fire from some of the council's nine members in the past. On Tuesday, however, no councilmen suggested eliminating the allocation, as has been done in previous years.

In order for the Lafayette Consolidated Government to give the $550,000 to the Cajundome, the council must first approve a new intergovernmental agreement.

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette owns the Cajundome, and the state's government built the facility. The subsidy from LCG helps fund Cajundome's operations.
