(KCEN) -- A big announcement was made about the future of Kyle Field yesterday.
The Aggies will continue to play at home during the construction process, as A&M repairs and renovates their stadium.
They will be able to do all of that by using area hotel taxes totaling about 36 million dollars.
That will generate an estimated 1.2 million dollars per year.
Those taxes would end once the construction is fully paid for.
College Station Mayor Nancy Berry said, "In addition to what we already have in facilities, we are going to be able to have access to the university facilities that haven't been previously available. So if you think of it in one way, we're just expanding the portfolio of opportunities for people to come visit and to use these world-class facilities."
Studies show that the city could have lost more than 60 million dollars in revenue if the Aggies went an entire year without any home games.
