SANDY — The Sandy City Council voted unanimously during its Dec. 1 meeting to study the economic impact of Rio Tinto Stadium.

The study, which is expected to be finished in a few months, is a follow-up from benefits studies performed before the stadium was built.

Almost half of the cost of the $110 million structure was financed by hotel room taxes and a redevelopment bond.

The stadium celebrated its first anniversary last summer.

"Now, we're dealing with real numbers," said Sandy economic development director Randy Sant.

The economic feasibility will use both city staff and outside specialists, Sant said. Each year, the study will be updated.
