Something isn’t right with Hyatt reportedly changing their minds on wanting tax rebates from Normal.
The resolution and new agreement was in the packet for last night’s meeting: PDF page 159 and following: http://www.normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/2672
The Town of Normal didn’t seem to mind the handout – they put it on the agenda where everything get the official Okee-Dokee from the Trustees.
I wonder if JB Pritzker got wind of one of his hotels asking for your money? Since Democrats hate evil corporations, he must have been horrified! He’s out trying to convince the party guppies he cares, Normal’s Hyatt could at least wait until after the election before begging for a bailout! Besides, he’s a successful businessman! Failure of a Hyatt hotel? Not during a campaign!
Politics can best be described as convincing people to believe the unbelievable. Koos announced item “I” on the agenda was withdrawn by the requester. End of comments.
I hope somebody is sending newspaper clippings to Tari Renner. The hotel business isn’t working out so well locally, and that’s BEFORE the official opening of the revamped hotel in north Normal. Maybe Koos knew what was coming and took out the Motel 6 for Portillos in an attempt to save the Hyatt.
Epic fail. Koos needs to take out some more competition – I wonder who is next? How is the Chateau doing?
