PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) - The future of the Pontiac Silverdome is at the center of a public hearing on Thursday.
The Silverdome's owner wants Pontiac's financial manager to give them a tax break in order to fix up the former home of the Detroit Lions.
However, giving the stadium a break on property taxes could be a tough call for emergency manager, Lou Schimmel.
Pontiac currently gets $95,000 a year in taxes for the property.
Triple Properties Inc. purchased the 80,300-seat facility in 2009 for $583,000.
There's been talk of the group bringing a Major League Soccer franchise to metro Detroit to play at the Silverdome.
Thursday, Triple Properties Inc. will present their plans in requesting a tax break at a public hearing at Pontiac City Hall at 3 p.m.
The Silverdome was home of the Lions until 2002.
