The article focuses on a new 5,500-seat home for the Austin Ice Bats of the Central Hockey League (CHL) which is the subject of a special election to be held on February 5, 2004 in Cedar Park, Texas. The suburb north of Austin, Texas is asking voters to approve $30.8 million in general obligation bonds for the publicly owned, privately managed facility. The city council unanimously set the election just a day after Cedar Park officials signed a non-binding agreement with Global Entertainment Corp., the Phoenix-based owner of the CHL, and Ice Bats owner Norm Green to build and operate the center. It will be operated by International Coliseums Corp., a subsidiary of Global Entertainment.
