We should know more on Wednesday about the new downtown hotel in Evansville.
City officials are expecting to receive the next round of information from the developer, and the mayor tells us he expects to have the deal finalized this month.
"Think about all those associations that are not coming to Evansville on an annual basis because we don't have a convention hotel. We're leaving a lot of money on the table. We can be attracting hundreds, if not thousands, more people to our community on an annual basis," Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says.
"Just that percentage of new business could generate upwards of $6 million plus annualized for Evansville. That's good business and that's business we're not currently attracting," says Bob Warren of the Evansville Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
Winnecke says if everything goes as planned, he hopes to break ground sometime in the fall.
