During Commissioner Comments Monday night, Ward 3's James Harrod offered new information regarding the current state of the controversial Broadway Marquee Project.

“I had received many calls and communications concerning the Broadway project,” he said. “I was notified by the city manager a couple weeks ago that that project had been placed on the shelf due to the amount of opposition to it.”

He said according to city ordinance the item should have been addressed at the next meeting, but had not been placed back on the agenda.

“I've been assured by the city manager that this project is dead and the engineer's been notified and no contracts have been issued on that project,” he said.
