Franklin County Treasurer Ed Leonard plans to buy $16 million worth of bonds to finance the expansion of a parking garage near the Arena District, an investment he said will both make money and save the Convention Facilities Authority millions of dollars in interest.
The additional 900 spaces at the 37 W. Vine St. garage are expected to help support growth in the Arena District, the Short North and convention and tourism business.
