Stadium plagued by rodent problems

The Marion County Health Department has issued dozens of citations and thousands of dollars in fines over the past year
to the company that has a $13 million contract to provide food service at Lucas Oil Stadium. Health inspectors have reported
mice droppings, pests and/or rodents, and food that’s unsafe or in unsound condition. South Carolina-based catering company
Centerplate Inc. released a statement Tuesday saying it takes the food violations seriously and will use a special team to
inspect each concession area at the stadium. Colts officials sent an e-mail to season-ticket holders Tuesday night saying
“the entities directly in control of food operations at Lucas Oil Stadium, Centerplate and the (Capital Improvement
Board), have assured us that they are thoroughly investigating the report and that any issues they identify will be corrected
immediately.” Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
