A meeting of Paris’ City Council next week will vote on a resolution formally giving Mayor Anne Hidalgo the power to sign guarantees required by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to host the Games.

“It’s a formal stage but at the same time extremely important,” Jean-Francois Martins, Deputy Mayor of Paris responsible for Sport said.

Paris is in competition with Budapest, Los Angeles and Rome to stage the sporting spectacular in 2024.

After the first dossier on the “concept” of the Games on February 17, a second will be prepared for October 7 on the legal side and financing.

Some 30mn euros (B1.16bn) will be used to build a second stadium in Bercy, and 21mn euros (B814mn) on an aquatic centre near the Stade de France in the north of the city.

Another 25mn euros (B969mn) is planned for training sites, 12.5mn (B484mn) for a swimming pool in Seine Saint-Denis and 6.5mn (B252mn) on the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium.

Paris will also guarantee 4mn euros (B155mn) to set aside for the future Olympic village.

The overall budget for construction work for the Games is estimated at 3 billion euros including 1.5 billion of public money.

“We have gambled on a simple concept, relying on existing sites,” said Martins.

“This is the first time in the history of the Olympics that a city has decided that residents will have their say and be able to choose some of the amenities around the Olympic venues,” added Martins.

The council will also vote on a guarantee to extend a line of the RER, an express train connecting Paris city centre and the surrounding suburbs.

The IOC will reveal the 2024 bid winner in Lima on September 13, 2017.

Great what money they can spend for a few elite sport people to strut their stuff for a couple of weeks...  When so many people starve to death every day in the world.
