County can't afford new HD scoreboard for Bengals

CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials in Hamilton County say it doesn't have the $10 million needed to buy a high-definition scoreboard due under the Cincinnati Bengals' stadium lease with the county.
  
Bengals director of business development Bob Bedinghaus tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1dr7hzD ) it's time to consider the issue. But the team hasn't requested it yet and acknowledges county budget concerns.
  
The Bengals' lease calls for taxpayers to fund new technology requested by the team for county-owned Paul Brown Stadium if at least 14 other NFL stadiums have the same technology. The Enquirer reports 21 teams have high-definition scoreboards, and more are getting them.
  
Commissioners say the county can't afford that price tag this year, but the project might be feasible under an extended timetable or if the Bengals cover part of the cost.
