MASON CITY – The Mason City council met at noon at city hall on the second floor and voted to move forward with the downtown Renaissance project.
There were four items on the agenda; all were approved by a vote of 4-0. (At-large councilman Paul Adams was not in attendance, and one seat on the council is open, but will be filled after an election on Tuesday, September 19.)
The meeting and affirmative votes paved the way for bid on the hotel / skywalk construction, museum construction and renovations to Music Man Square connected to the Renaissance project. Bids will be accepted until October 17. Gatehouse of Mason City, LLC has already been selected as the developer of choice for the hotel by the city council and the Mason City Foundation as the developer of choice for the museum and renovations to Music Man Square. But, if any other bids are better, the council may consider those.
