As Ennis City Commission members prepared to give their OK to historic preservation tax breaks and grants, Jim Lake and Amanda Moreno spoke to assure the community they are still interested in working on development in downtown.
The commission’s first scheduled vote on the ordinance came a week after a revelation by local Jim Lake Company partner Meg Sullivan: Without a larger grant inducement from the city, privately discussed dreams of developing a cultural arts center at 213 W. Ennis Ave. would not come to fruition.
She said the company would not commit to work here without 45 percent funding from Ennis.
