It's Time to End This

Today, in committee, the Macon City Council will once again take up the hotel issue. They are set to vote on whether to extend, for 90 days, the MOU that has lapsed. Recently, the Bibb County Commission failed to get a second on the motion to sign off on the funding (and the lengthy tax abatement). I am not sure what can happen in 90 days that would change the minds of the County Commission and School Board. I know that the School Board never voted on the issue, but I'm betting that they would've had concerns similar to the County Commission.

Rule of Thumb: If Charlie Bishop and Joe Allen agree, the deal has got to be bad.

Too much water is under the bridge on this one. We need to go back to the drawing board and try to get more of what we really want rather than settling for what we think we have to accept. This deal is going no where. Time to call it a day and move on.

Call committee members DeFore, Ficklin and Hill-Chambliss. Now. Tell them to kill this in committee. Today.
