SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers’ officials are seeking a multi-million dollar reduction on the rent the team pays Santa Clara for Levi’s Stadium.
KNTV reports Wednesday that the team has paid the city $24 million a year. But under their lease, the team is entitled to the lower rent of $20.25 million annually moving forward.READ MORE: 1 Dead In Sonoma Co. Brushfire As Heat Wave Grips Much Of California

But Santa Clara Vice Mayor Teresa O’Neill says she is not convinced the city should lower the rent.
O’Neill is asking for a second audit to examine at how much the city has had to pay for the stadium’s unexpected costs, including public safety expenses. She says the council needs a clearer understanding of how much money it really needs to cover expenses.MORE NEWS: Tuesday's Show Info. (6/28/22)
