The proposal of the Aerial Transportation Company to install and operate a skyride in Hemisfair and the downtown area was approved today by the City Council. Approval of the council was necessary since the ride, following the six-month fair, will become the property of the city. The contract gives the Aerial Transportation Company, comprised of Randy Clay, Austin Hemphill and B.J. “Red” McCombs, a 15-year concession on the ride following the fair. During that period, the company will pay the city 28 percent of the gross revenues.
