City back as scoreboard owner; team gives $500K

The city has retaken ownership rights to the Riverwalk Stadium scoreboard and the Biscuits are the ones "helping" buy the new one that is scheduled to be installed next month.

The entire scoreboard, ribbon board, closed-circuit TV system will cost a little more than $1 million. The Biscuits wired the city $500,000 in December, owner Sherrie Myers said, to cover half the expense.

The city will be the sole owner, though the current rent rates will remain.
