KOB Eyewitness News 4 has learned how much it's going to cost to rename part of a community center after late boxer Johnny Tapia.
The city council approved naming the gym at the Wells Park Community Center after Tapia.
We took a look at the agenda for Wednesday's city internal operations committee meeting.
It includes a request for $7,500 for a plaque and a sign.
Councilor Ken Sanchez originally proposed naming the entire community center after Tapia.
The plan was scaled back because of backlash over Tapia's drug history.
