Rushing right along in Davenport

A move to postpone further hearings on the Isle of Capri's riverfront proposal until January 2006 died on a 7-3 vote in Davenport city council's committee of the whole Monday.

Alds. Ambrose, Meyer and Lynn supported the 6-month delay. Several of the seven councilpeople who think that's too slow also said they're pretty nervous about voting by June 1, as the city's plan calls for at the moment.

Nevertheless council-of-the-whole advanced to Wednesday's meeting proposals to hold public hearings May 31 on various aspects of the IOC proposal.
The council plans a work session on the agreements at 6 p.m. Thursday in council chambers. It's a time and place to ask questions and make comments.
