|Lease granted for new hotel on Vidalia riverfront|
The Vidalia Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday night to approve a lease for the remaining five acres of riverfront property for a new hotel.
According to city attorney Jack McLemore, the lease will be issued to businessman Rene Ortlieb for a major chain hotel. McLemore said the hotel will contain a restaurant and shops and will be located south of Promise Hospital.
"We are excited about this," said Mayor Hyram Copeland. "This will be a tremendous asset and it will enhance our convention and complex with us being able to draw larger events. Not only that, we are looking at job creation and this will enhance our economic development program with tax monies generated."
"We have been working with Mr. Ortlieb for several months and he is very interested in the Miss-Lou area," he said.
Copeland also said the new hotel will tie in with the proposed new recreation complex.
"We will be able to easily accommodate large state and district tournaments and sporting events," he said. "Those events bring in a lot of dollars to a community. We are excited and hope it all works out."
The lease is subject to approval from the Riverfront Authority.
The property had been previously leased in 2008 to an Arkansas company planning to build a 100-room Holiday Inn hotel.
