The Deal is Dead

The hotel deal is dead. Deader than dead. For those who are not from Macon, we have been in the midst of an epic (yawn) battle to get a hotel built near the convention center. Trust me when I say that the proposal accepted by City Council was, shall we say, unpopular. Because of the THIRTY YEARS of tax abatement involved in the plan, both the School Board and County Commission had to act to approve the financing. Today, a motion was made to place the issue on the agenda for the County Commission, and that motion failed to get a second. Okay, they didn't have the guts to just vote it down, but this is just as good. No approval, no deal. Dead, dead, deader than dead.

Now, let's start over and get the right deal done.
