Now the city council is looking at a proposal to build multi-athletic facilities to attract more teams and events to Billings. It won't work.

To the tune of almost $60 million. Let me remind you that MetraPark was built in 1975 for $11 million and underwent a face lift 8 years ago for $27 million. That facility has events every week for the public and struggles to make it, and no one does a better job bringing events in for Billings.

This would be fiscally irresponsible unless the users can fund it; even if they do, how long would it last ?
