Request Legal Opinions on Coliseum Pact
The Coliseum Commission has asked Atty. Gen. Stanley Mosk and City Atty. Roger Arnebergh to submit legal opinions by Oct. 17 on which to base a 1960 contract with the Dodgers.
County Counsel Harold Kennedy already has submitted his report.
No Request Made
Chairman G. William Shea of the commission's baseball committee said his group will meet with Dodger president Walter F. O'Malley following receipt of the three legal opinions and then present a final recommendation.
O'Malley so far has made no formal request for use of the Coliseum for a third season, commissioner Kenneth Hahn pointed out at a meeting on Wednesday.
However commissioner A. E. England said O'Malley had requested an early meeting with the baseball committee.
In 1958 and 1959 the club paid a flat $200,000 a year plus 10% of gross attendance receipts and concessions profits at nine home games.
Kennedy said the commission should receive 10% of attendance receipts and concessions at all home games.
The Dodgers claim it would cost the club $800,000 to play in the Coliseum under Kennedy's recommended terms.
Meanwhile, the City Council postponed until Oct. 22 further consideration of the rezoning of Chavez Ravine property for use as a Dodger stadium and other purposes.
