UH could get lower Aloha Stadium costs for large crowds

About giving UH a lower clean-up fee if they hit attendance targets, Aloha Stadium Authority Chairman Keven Chong Kee said:
“The more fans — and revenue — they bring into the stadium, the more relief they could see.” (HA)

HA Note: “UH was not charged rent for the 2008 season but paid $778,592 in so-called “out-of-pocket” expenses, including $104,846 in combined clean-up and refuse disposal charges, according to the parties.”

About their need to get a better deal with the stadium, JD told the Authority:
“it is imperative we get some (financial) help.” (HA)

HA Note: “The school is expected to run a $2.5 million to $3 million deficit for the current fiscal year that closes June 30 and has an accumulated $5.4 million net deficit over the past five years.”

About how they want to help UH, Chong Kee said:
“We’re looking for ways to help the university out. We want to be part of the solution.” (HA)

About how UH will be grateful for any help they can get, JD said:
“We’d be appreciative of anything they could do. In my 14 months (as UH AD), the level of cooperation we’ve enjoyed in all regards has been fantastic.” (HA)
