Green Bay Council Stalls Hotel Sale
Green Bay-- The City of Green Bay will not sell the Clarion Hotel Downtown, at least not yet. The city council voted Tuesday "7 to 5," to put the 2.7 million-dollar-deal on hold for one month. Several council members thought the city should give other companies a proper chance at placing a bid.
Collectively the Green Bay council agreed, the city should not be managing the hotel for any longer than it has to. For one, according to the city's lawyer, Green Bay is liable for paying for major repairs if something happened. It was pointed out, however, general operational costs are being covered by hotel profits.
Council president and District 2 Alderman, Thomas De Wane, made the motion to hold on the deal with "American Hospitality Management."
