Danville City Commission reversed two of its decisions Monday from the Sept. 8 meeting. Commissioner Ryan Owens changed his vote to one in favor of interviewing consultants who would conduct a $50,000 study on how the city can best use the property it owns, including the Save-A-Lot store next to city hall.
The study was approved earlier this year and is included in the budget.
Previously, Owens had said that the decision should be put off until Mayor John W.D. Bowling returns from an extended vacation, sometime in early October.
Commissioner Chester Kavanaugh voted against the motion because he said he hadn't finished reviewing the consultants' applications.
"The Mayor said he wanted to be involved, and I'm going to try to be diplomatic here," Commissioner Terry Crowley said. "But this desire to be involved has turned into a seven-week delay."
Owens, Crowley and Commissioner Jamey Gay voted to schedule interviews for three of the five applicants, CMW, Inc., Bravura and Brandstetter Carroll, Inc.
