Plans call for a 52-room structure that could employ 5 full time employees and about 20 part time workers. It would also include a business center, indoor pool and spa. If all goes to plan, the new hotel should be open by spring of 2011. The City is considering whether or not to issue nearly $4 million in industrial revenue bonds for the project.
