Wrigley Field renovations could get $8.5M tax break
November 12, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Chicago Cubs could get an $8.5 million tax break for renovation work on Wrigley Field.
That proposal passed the City Council Committee on Tuesday and may go to the full council on Wednesday.
The tax break comes under rules for renovating of historic sites.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Alderman Tom Tunney-- a frequent critic of Cub renovation plans in the past-- defended the move, citing the large amount of money the team will spend on the project.
