Full speed ahead!

An update of the proposed Isle of Capri-Davenport agreement is up on the city's website: http://www.cityofdavenportiowa.com/images/latest/waterfront/DevAgmt.pdf

There's no slowing these guys down. The Davenport councilpeople decided, 7-3, Wednesday they don't need an extra two weeks to consider the complex paperwork in the Isle of Capri deal.
So it's on to decision day June 1, though alderperson Moritz did say she'll make a motion then to table the matter for two weeks.

Somewhat confusingly she wasn't among the three who voted Wednesday to table for two weeks.

Alderperson McGivern announced he's voting for the deal and asked the Isle's employees to please quit calling about it. None of the other alderpeople said right out which way they're going.
A lot of people spoke for the deal and against the deal, with most of the arguments being rehashes of what's been said a lot of times.

Next up is the Thursday night work session. It's at 6 p.m. at city hall, and a big crowd is expected. The point is to get down to the nitty-gritty of what all the legal jargon in the agreement means in dollars and cents to the city and its future. Big job.
