Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and City Councilman John Friend spent some time together today discussing their differences over the proposed hotel.  On Monday, Winnecke announced the city had signed a deal to begin work on a downtown convention center hotel.

But Friend says he needs 30 to 40 days to study the issue. He also says the approval comes at a bad time because he's in the middle of preparing hearing later this month.

Councilman Friend discusses with Brad Byrd about some of the financial concerns he has on the hotel project.
