Arena weighs on Wenatchee

WENATCHEE — If residents of the nine municipalities that own Town Toyota Center don’t agree to share more of this events arena’s $41.8 million debt, Wenatchee’s residents, alone, could have to foot more than two-thirds of the bill. That’s the way it’s looking now, as the deadline to refinance the debt looms, a state sales tax rebate earmarked for arena debt covers less than a third and the arena, itself, is expected to cover expenses, but not much more.
