Conor O'Daniel tells Eyewitness News he will vote no against this project saying the subsidy of $20 million is too great with zero ownership interest. The downtown hotel has been in the works since former Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel's administration.
O'Daniel goes on to say: "I am in favor of development. I want to develop that area and a hotel makes good sense, but I'm not willing to write a blank check."
A vote was set for September 9, but the council asked for more time to review the developer's plans. No new date has been set.
