LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette’s Cajundome has been more of an eyesore lately with streaks of dirt and mildew cascading down the exterior of the dome.

Cajundome Director Greg Davis told The Daily Advertiser (https://bit.ly/1RxAk7s) the roof needs to be fixed.

In fact, Davis and his crew have known for three years that the dome roof needs to be addressed. They just didn’t have the $1.2 million needed to do it.

Now they do.

Davis says a hotel/motel tax the state rebates to the Cajundome is being used to issue bonds and generate the $1.2 million needed to clean and re-seal the roof. He expects work to begin in the spring, probably in March.
