KATY (AP) – It was a bad night for stadium financing in the Houston area, with one suburban district voting down a bond issue that would have built a deluxe high school football stadium.
Voters in the Katy school district on Tuesday voted down a bond package that would have provided $69.5 million for a new, 14,000-seat football stadium.
The rejection came the same day as voters in Harris County at large rejected a plan to turn the Astrodome into a convention center.
Some local tea party members opposed the Katy bond program, saying the district shouldn’t take on more debt.
It went on the ballot one year after the Dallas suburb of Allen opened a $60 million stadium.
