Dribbling water enters hall of fame
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- There's some unwanted dribbling going on at the Basketball Hall of Fame.
City officials say the $109 million dome-shaped building has sprung some leaks since it was built about two years ago.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, along with its parking garage and 18.5-acre site, are owned by the city. The property is rented to the hall in a 99-year lease.
The state put up $42.5 million for the museum's construction, and about $80,000 of that is left, said city economic developer Thomas McColgan. He expects the remaining money to cover repair costs.
"I think it's minor. But before we go ahead and spend whatever balances are left in the various accounts, we want to make sure the problem gets addressed and corrected," he said.
