City cashing in on Chihuahuas' popularity

El Paso leaders say there's proof the ballpark is padding the city's coffers.

So far the city has collected $48,000 in parking revenue from the Convention Center and Union Plaza transit terminal lots.

That money is being used to pay off the debt for the stadium.

The city has also collected close to $135,000 from tickets sales from May through June. 50 cents of each baseball ticket sold goes back to the city.

Hotel occupancy in El Paso was also at 70 percent in May, up nearly 9 percent from a year ago.
