CHICAGO -- Wayne County, Mich., officials are putting together a new and expanded package of potential taxes that would be used to back bonds for a new stadium for the Detroit Tigers baseball team, a spokeswoman for the county executive's office said yesterday.

That county-wide package would include a 1% tax on hotel-motel rooms that is estimated to generate $1.5 million a year and a 1% tax on restaurant meals that would raise $11 million to $14 million a year, according to Irma Clark, the county spokeswoman. A possible third revenue source -- a 3% surchage on rental cars in the county -- has not yet been ironed out, she explained.
