Rare Katz interview, debunking (city hall) leak that incorrectly said he was demanding $6m/year from city.

Quote:
“People need to understand the full picture. I’m not sure they do.

“The fact is, I’m trying to find a way for the economics to work for both sides. To have those efforts to save the deal turned against me by a leak like that is really unfortunate.”

Katz says the perceptions are way off base when it comes from the costs projected to go over the original $450 million.

Indeed, he says he’s willing to put more money into the deal to help make it happen.

“We said we’re prepared to do our part. We’re trying to be flexible and work through all the issues fairly and reasonably.”

Asked specifically if that meant more money from the Katz Group, the Oiler owner said yes.
