Economic Development Committe to Hold Special Meeting Friday. You're So Invited.
Shortly after posting Sam's item about yesterday's closed-door meeting of the city council's Economic Development Committee, during which the council members decided it was in the taxpayers' best interest to run a hotel, we noticed this. Turns out, yesterday afternoon the committee filed with the City Secretary's Office notice of a "special called meeting" for this very Friday, to be held from 2 to 4 p.m. in Room 6ES of Dallas City Hall. And the subject of the meeting is, of course, "Convention Center Hotel -- Developer and Site Selection, Financing, and Project Status." Assistant City Manager A.C. Gonzalez and Frank Poe, Convention & Events Services Director at. the Dallas Convention Center, will address the committee.
Though there will be a closed Executive Session, the meeting is open to the public, for those Friends who've wondered, gee, why can't we vote on this thing. Because I am certain there'll be somebody there happy to answer that question for you. In the words of Miracle Max ... --Robert Wilonsky
Update: Wuh-oh: Looks like Friday's get-together has been canceled.
