Ordinance Adopted

Posted by alalto on July 29, 2008


All voting members of the Decatur City Council voted in favor of the ordinance for the incentives for the Sweetwater development.  Billy Jackson (the council president) wasn’t very clear on what all the ordinance included, but I’m going to do some research and try to figure out what all is included.  Mr. Jackson made it seem like the ordinance approved the incentives so long as the city’s concerns were worked on.  Like I said, it wasn’t very clear, so I’m gonna do a bit of research.

SOME CLARIFICATION

Ok, so I snooped around and came across a video on WAFF.com.  It explains that the ordinance that was approved tonight formalized an agreement that guarentees a Bass Pro, hotel/convention center/225,000 square feet of retail space.  So, it seems that the city moved to accept the contract and what not.  Here’s the link if you wanna watch for yourself.  There’s going to be a story on WAFF tonight at 10PM about the meeting, so you can watch that and get some clear info, I’ll also try and post the link to that video on here for you.

I’m going to be going to the council meeting at 7PM soon.  They’re supposed to vote on accepting or rejecting the contract with Genesis USA for the Sweetwater Development.  I’ll post when I get home from the meeting about what happened.
