Miami-Dade’s 13 commissioners appear divided over the more than $515 million deal for the Florida Marlins’ new stadium. The contracts call for the county to commit $347.5 toward stadium construction and $10 million toward infrastructure costs, as well as $35 million toward construction that the Marlins will repay through annual rent. Two commissioners have expressed support for the deal, two have said they will vote against it and others have said they are still looking over the plans.
