The Lafayette City-Parish Council is considering an increased subsidy to the Cajundome.
The Advertiser reports the council this week briefly discussed City-Parish President Joey Durel's proposed $550,000 allocation to the Cajundome for the upcoming fiscal year, which marks a $50,000 increase from the current fiscal year.
The Cajundome subsidy has come under fire from some of the council's nine members in the past. On Tuesday, however, no councilmen suggested eliminating the allocation, as has been done in previous years.
