CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Charlotte Bobcats and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority want nearly 42 million dollars from city leaders.
They say the money is needed to fund improvements at Time Warner Cable Arena's suites and restaurants.
Friday's outside electrical repairs at Time Warner Cable Arena are minor compared to the proposed up-fitting of this Center City entertainment complex.
On Monday, Charlotte City Council members are expected to hear a pitch from the Bobcats and the CRVA that the arena is need of some big time sprucing up.
Council member David Howard is among those who will be all ears.
"The building is ours and we want them to be successful so there will be a lot of due diligence left to do a lot," he said.
Keep in mind that voters years ago failed to approve the arena bundle, and fans near the team store like Maxwell Millington had a simple message for council members which is go slow.
"If it will like bring better events to Charlotte, it will also be a good return on investment. So I don't know, I guess I have mixed feelings on it, he said."
Critics may say that 40 plus millions is too much, but New York transplants like Tony Bastarache understands the concept of reinvestment.
"It depends on what they want to bring to this city?" Bastarache asks." They should look to broaden the horizons for here in Charlotte. It's and up and coming town that's for sure. So it depends on what they want to bring."
When it comes to the numbers, Councilman Howard expects view each expenditure line by line.
"We're gonna go through each item one by one. Itemize it and make sure that it's something we have to do now."
As the Bobcats season winds down, one goal council members may have is easing the pain of sticker shock for local taxpayers.
