    was paid for, in part, by the Convention and Visitors Bureau, which is funded by a hotel tax. So while it may have been tax dollars, it was highly likely that those were dollars from non-Syracuse residents, not from locals.

      ...which taxes helped fund the feasibility study...the mere fact that taxpayers helped pay for should be made available to the public. (The larger question is: why wouldn't they want to make the feasibility study public?)

        The university bungled this for sure, maybe because they are between chancellors. Trying to keep the study private sure doesn't look good.
