Conference center, infrastructure among city’s 2013 priorities
Monday, January 14, 2013
Jefferson City priorities for 2013 range from accomplishing long-discussed projects, such as the conference center, to continuing to maintain existing infrastructure.
Fourth Ward Councilwoman Carrie Carroll said her biggest priority for the year is the long-proposed conference center. Carroll said though things finally are moving on the concept, with the city hoping to get proposals from hoteliers and developers by the end of the month, it hasn’t moved as quickly as she had hoped.
The conference center is high on the priority list for other council members as well, including 2nd Ward Councilman J. Rick Mihalevich and 5th Ward Councilman Larry Henry.
Carroll said another priority for her is the upcoming municipal elections. Four out of five wards have a race, and she said she wants to make sure the new council will be business-friendly.
