Secaucus to get $18K over Super Bowl halftime flap

2-26-14

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — The mayor of Secaucus says the town will get paid by a company that was to use local facilities for the Super Bowl halftime show preparation but pulled out.

Mayor Michael Gonnelli says a representative of Touchdown Entertainment said the company would pay the town about $18,000.

Gonnelli tells The Record (http://bit.ly/1hPQOdj) the company contracted to use the local high school as a staging area for the halftime show at MetLife Stadium. Gonnelli says the company pulled out about 10 days before the game.

The company has claimed Secaucus changed the contract terms and made it more difficult for workers to get to the game and back. Gonnelli says the changes were made before the contract was agreed upon. The company didn’t respond to a message left by the newspaper.
