Davenport Alderman, SAU Officials Meet On Stadium

Posted: Updated:

Davenport city leaders can't seem to agree on a location for the SAU stadium and we have found out that some city leaders have been meeting in private with Saint Ambrose.

Three Davenport Aldermen held a meeting last Thursday at city hall to discuss possible new locations for the St. Ambrose Stadium. Alderman Barney Barnhill wants to look at what he calls a compromise, go ahead with the sports complex at St. Vincent but put the stadium somewhere else.

Mike Poster tells us the University representatives will not consider other stadium locations.

"A complex without a stadium really isn't what we're looking for at this point and we'd prefer to go forward with our entire plan," he said.

But in order to move forward with the current proposal, city leaders have to come together to overturn the mayor's veto. Seven "yeses" are needed to do that.

They will vote next Wednesday.
