'"I'm not asking for one penny of government assistance with regard to purchase of the team, but there are things that need to be addressed. There needs to be an improved sound system and ways to make such a large venue adaptable for smaller shows. There's a need for more parking near the arena and we would like to see some effort to create relief on the debt. It's a community-owned facility, but it is not state-of-the-art and it loses money and those issues have to be addressed."'
