The monthly meeting of the Jackson Redevelopment Authority was uneventful Wednesday morning, at least in the portion of the meeting open to the public.
For the first hour of the meeting, which began at 10 a.m., board members discussed issues it has had in regards to Union Station, including repeated break-ins on the second floor and a roof that has leaks. The second discussion item involved a planned renovation to the hospitality area adjacent to the meeting room at 218 Presidents Street, where the group meets.
The board then went into executive session to discuss important matters such as the proposed convention center hotel project and an update and call for action regarding the ongoing renovation of Farish Street.
Members on hand included President Ronnie Crudup (Ward 6), who was re-elected to lead the group at the meeting, Beau Whittington (Ward 1), John R. Reeves (Ward 5), Beneta Burk (Ward 3), Gregory Green (Ward 4). Executive Director Willie Mott and Administrative Assistant Denise Drake were also in attendance.
