Nevada: Clark County taps Allegiant Stadium reserve fund for $11.5M bond payment Alan Snel, LVSportsBiz.com · November 27, 2020 at 10:12 am A major shortfall in hotel room tax revenues from the COVID-19 pandemic forced Clark County to tap a reserve fund big-time to the tune of more than $11.5 million Wednesday Thanksgiving Eve so that the county could make a $16 million payment on the stadium bonds Dec. 1. Clark County spokesman Erik Pappa delivered the news in this statement, which read in part: “Fiscal Year ‘21 room tax collections are insufficient to pay the debt service payment due on December 1 for the Stadium Authority bonds. The total payment due is $16,057,500 of which $11,553,389 was needed from the reserve fund.” Southern Nevada is contributing $750 million to the Raiders’ $2 billion stadium project, which lured the NFL team from Oakland to Las Vegas for its inaugural season in 2020. To help finance that $750 million contribution to stadium construction, there was $645.1 million in bonds floated by the county for the Las Vegas Stadium Authority. The Raiders officially run the stadium and pay consultant companies to manage the venue.
