Lexington city leaders to meet with University of Kentucky to talk Rupp

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington mayor Jim Gray and University of Kentucky president Eli Capilouto will meet Thursday to discuss the future of Rupp Arena and the Convention Center.

A $351 Million renovation of Rupp has already been proposed.

Last month, Capilouto sent a 'scathing' letter to project managers. He claimed city leaders tried to blame UK for state lawmakers not being able to secure funding for the center's renovations during the legislative session last spring.
