Alamodome Marquee Improvement


SUMMARY:

This ordinance authorizes acceptance of a contract with Daktronics, Inc. to provide all labor, material and equipment to install two (2) Outdoor Daktronics LED Video Displays at the Alamodome for the Convention and Sports Facilities Department for a total cost of $545,780.00, and appropriates funds in the amount of $545,780.00 from the Hotel Occupancy Tax Redemption & Capital Reserve Fund.
