HOUSTON (AP) - The dilemma of the deteriorating Houston Astrodome remains unresolved with the passing of a deadline to put a bond referendum before voters in May.
The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/XFGs3V) reports Harris County commissioners meeting Tuesday are taking no action on a bond question to overhaul the vacant facility. Voters would need to approve a ballot issue on bonds that would provide the millions of dollars to renovate the 48-year-old stadium.
But no one's really sure what to do with it.
The dome's been unfit for occupancy since 2009. It hasn't been home to a sports team since the Houston Astros moved to their new downtown baseball stadium in 2000.
The former ``Eighth Wonder of the World'' now languishes next to Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL Houston Texans.
