HUBER HEIGHTS — Huber Heights City Council Monday expected to approve a resolution that would have led to the signing of a contract for construction of a new hotel at the Rose Music Center, but it turns out that approval will have to wait at least one more meeting.

The resolution calls for the city manager to enter into a contract for the sale of land at the music center for construction of a four-story hotel with a minimum of 88 rooms. But council decided to delay the decision until at least its next meeting when members discovered an amendment to the agreement had not yet been made available to the public.

The original contract was for a 2-acre plot. However, 0.4 acre of the original area is in a conservation area and cannot be used for development. The amendment calls for the city to sell 2.4 acres to the developer for a price of $600,000.

Since the amendment with the additional acreage had not been made available to the public, council put off a vote on the issue until the next meeting, when it is expected to approve the sale so the hotel project can get under way.
