JACKSONVILLE Fla.-- The Everbank Field experience just got bigger and better for Jaguars fans. The world's largest scoreboard, pools and even a new party deck are in order.
But those cheering on the team aren't necessarily cheering for the cost of these massive stadium improvements.
"Who runs the stadium? Is it us? Or is it the Jaguars," asked taxpayer Connie Benham.
On Tuesday, the City Council approved 14-2 to pay $43 million for these fancy new amenities. They'll pay off the loan with a bed tax, a move councilman Stephen Joost said isn't the smartest investment, and one he and councilman Don Redman voted against.
"I'm not against investing. I just think the taxpayers could get a much better deal," he told Action News.
His main concern is the longevity of the team in Jacksonville.
"The money that you're talking about doesn't go away if the football team doesn't go away," he said.
Shad Kahn said he will invest $20 million of his own, proving he means business.
It's a move councilman Bill Bishop hopes lures people to Jacksonville.
"These video boards have potential that I think everybody hasn't thought about yet from the standpoint of events," he said.
It may be a win for the Jaguars, but only time will tell if it's a win for the city.
