RESOLUTION NO. RS2004-426
A resolution requesting the Convention Center Commission to update the Metropolitan Council regarding the status of the convention center feasibility study.
WHEREAS, a performance audit of the Nashville Convention Center conducted by KPMG in 2003 focused on the operations of the current facility, but did not specifically address future expansion or construction of a new convention center; and

Section 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Convention Center Commission to update the Metropolitan Council and the Council Convention and Tourism Committee regarding the status of the convention center feasibility study.
