Partington mentioned a few other things during the Convention Center update. He said they would like the Hotel owners to continue to service the Convention Center through February, allowing the City some time to figure out what improvements need to be made. They also made a parking agreement with the Hotel owners. The Council also voted to allow Partington to work with other managers of convention centers to give the City some ideas on what improvements should be made.
