LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11)—The President of the state’s flagship university is getting social media attention after he sent a letter about the lack of funding for renovating Rupp Arena.
UK President Eli Capilouto sent a letter to the developer for not getting the funding.
The General Assembly session ended earlier in the year, before deciding to use $80 million of taxpayer money for the renovations.
“I am disappointed that you and others associated with the project have chosen to privately and publically criticize the University of Kentucky,” the letter reads in part.
The renovation of Rupp Arena was revealed earlier in the year by Gov. Steve Beshear at a meeting, but it is unknown if the project will go ahead at this point.
