The seemingly-imminent vote on funding a downtown Convention Hotel Project in Evansville is on hold, for now.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke has released a statement saying that his administration and the City Council have agreed to "engag[e] Crowe Horwath, LLP to answer final questions from Council related to the Downtown Convention Hotel Project.
Crowe Horwath is a third party consulting firm. It will now be their job to review the hotel financial plan and finances of the developer HCW.
The Mayor went on to say "We are confident Crowe Horwath will complete this work expeditiously."
The Mayor was scheduled to head Japan with a Hoosier delegation, but he announced yesterday he would be staying put for a "potential vote on the downtown hotel project."
