Approval Set for Browns Stadium To Get $5.8M In Improvements

Cleveland’s City Council approved a $5.8 million lump sum for repairs to Cleveland Browns Stadium on on Monday.

The Browns plan to spend $1.2 million for refurbishing club seats, $750,000 to waterproof the concrete under those seats with most of the money going to for replacement and repair concrete on interior ramps and walkways and a plaza outside the stadium.

The city, which owns the stadium, is only required to provide $850,000 per year for stadium improvements. The sum comes from the city’s sin tax on alcohol and tobacco sales and the agreement reached Monday frees the city from repair obligations for the next seven years.

“We own Cleveland Browns Stadium,” Ken Silliman, Mayor Frank Jackson’s Chief of Staff, said on Monday. “When you own a building and a few years go by, it starts to develop needs. It’s just like when you own a home.”
