The Bengals want new high definition scoreboards at county-owned Paul Brown Stadium and Hamilton County taxpayers are obligated to foot the $10 million bill.
However, the county say the Bengals are willing to pick up some of the cost.
The Bengals recently sent a letter to the county officially asking for the improvement. In the letter, Bengals Vice President Troy Blackburn noted that 15 NFL stadiums - many of them publicly owned - have installed hi-def scoreboards.
The Bengals’ lease says if new technology is installed in 14 other NFL stadiums, the county must provide the same thing for the Bengals.
However, county commissioner Greg Hartmann told 9 On Your Side that the Bengals have agreed to pick up some of the cost. Hartmann said final details have not been worked out.
The letter says the Bengals’ 14-year-old scoreboards are outdated and among the oldest and the smallest in the league. It says it is difficult to find replacement parts when they malfunction and over the years they have lost a lot of sparkle and shine.
The Bengals want the new high definition scoreboards in place by next season.
