Council rejects subsidy for conference center
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
The Jefferson City Council decided no operating subsidy would be offered to a developer or hotelier for the proposed conference center.
At the City Council work session Monday, council members voted no on the question of offering an operating subsidy for a proposed conference center with very little discussion and 4th Ward Councilwoman Carrie Carroll offering the only affirmative vote.
Carroll said she wanted to keep the options open and provide some flexibility on the issue, stating preference would of course go to those proposals that do not require an operating subsidy.
