TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – If the Taipei City Government was unable to agree with developer Farglory Group about the fate of the Taipei Dome, i-voting by the public might have to determine what happened to the stadium project, Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je said Saturday.
Next week, the result of arbitration about the delays in completing the 40,000-seat stadium is likely to be announced. The city ordered to halt to construction of the nearly completed project last year amid safety concerns and financial disputes with Farglory.
Once next week’s ruling was out, the city would sit down with the company and have a thorough talk about the Taipei Dome, Ko said. If in the end, no agreement was reached, public opinion would have the last say, with Internet voting as the method, according to the mayor. [FULL STORY]
