Mayor Lloyd Winnecke Responds to IceMen Negotiations

Local News

Negotiations reach an impasse on Wednesday between the City of Evansville and the IceMen on a new lease contract at Ford Center.

IceMen Owner Ron Geary says the city’s proposal would take away $950,000 from the team. He also says the IceMen have brought $1.2 million to Ford Center.

Geary, however, has not said if he will pull the team out of Evansville even though negotiations with the city are deadlocked, and the final lease agreement deadline has passed.

Brad Byrd talks with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke via phone about the city’s side on the negotiations, and what’s next with the IceMen.
