Stadium Authority to address UNLV football schedule

Thursday’s Las Vegas Stadium Authority meeting begins at 1 p.m.

The nine-member authority board is expected to receive updates on the construction of the $2 billion, 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium, approve the 2020 UNLV home football schedule at the stadium and an eight-page access policy to a luxury suite being provided to the authority.

The board also will conduct a public hearing on the authority’s proposed 2020-21 fiscal year budget that is expected to be negatively affected by hotel room closures in March, April and May. The authority is anticipating room-tax revenue of $18 million for the year. Historically, it has received between $4 million and $5 million a month.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
