The Aloha Stadium Authority authorized spending $155,000 to continue the process of determining the future of the aging 50,000-seat facility.

The funds, which were approved by a 7-0 vote Thursday, will allow the planned eight-phase study to complete Phase 3 proceed into phases 4 through 6 and should take the process into sometime early in 2015, the panel was told by a representative of the state Department of Accounting and General Services.

Foley & Lardner, a New York-based law firm, is conducting the study for the state which seeks to determine whether to build a new stadium or renovate the current one that has been in operation since 1975.

The new expenditures, in addition to an initially-approved outlay of $250,000, will take the total up to $405,000, officials said.

Phase 3, which is currently underway, involves composing and issuing a request for information. The board was told that is expected to be completed by the end of September.

Phase 4 is the evaluation of the RFI responses. Phase 5 is issuing a request for proposal while Phase 6 is an evaluation of the RFI responses.

Up to Phase 6, there is no commitment  to build anything, officials said.
