    PARIS: Paris will commit 145 million euros ($162 mn) for the renovation of stadiums and other infrastructure to ensure it hosts the 2024 Summer Olympics, city officials said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). 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 told Agence France-Presse. Paris is in competition with Budapest, Los Angeles and Rome to stage the sporting spectacular in 2024.
