Sacto mayor wants Woodland to help build new arena

"Woodland Vice Mayor Skip Davies said Woodland companies did 70 percent of the construction when the original Arco Arena was built. "We're looking at public financing options, but only after we know how much private (funds) we are going to get," he said. "So we're trying to get developers and operators and the Kings and different people to figure out how much they're putting in, and then we're going to see what we can do on the public side." Johnson asked the crowd to say "sales tax," and responded that will not be one of the options. "There are some other things that require a vote that only require 50 percent that we're looking at," he said, "but we're looking to see if we can do it without having to do a huge public vote, because there are dollars out there that can be reallocated with the city and county and other places." Once the group is able to bring together funds, Johnson said they would try and bond against it at a 10-to-one ratio."
