Today’s Plain Dealer has the latest on the issues that the Browns are having with the Port Authority over parking for games this upcoming season and beyond.
The Cleveland Browns want taxpayers to cut them a break on thousands of choice parking spaces leased from the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, citing the possibility of an NFL strike this season.
Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said team officials are confident the differences with the port can be worked out.
“We’re committed to reaching a better understanding of the reasons why the motion didn’t pass,” Gulkis said. “We’ll address their concerns, and we’re confident a resolution can be reached.”
The two sides will be cutting it close: The first of two home preseason games is Aug. 13 against the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. The first home regular-season game is Sept. 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Browns have for more than 30 years leased more than 5,000 parking spaces on Port of Cleveland docks west of the stadium. But the latest $225,000-per-year lease expires at the end of June.
