From Cindy Chang’s story in today’s Times-Pic:

Bob Dabney, a spokesman for [Stewart] Juneau, said: “I can confirm that LTPG and the city are in ongoing negotiations over the proposal submitted in response to the RFP. We’re not ready to concede that there are material changes between the RFP and the proposal.”


Nagin has said he does not use city money to pay for Wade’s photography services.


Precisely what Wade is charged with doing in the auditorium project is unclear. The original project proposal contained a “development consulting agreement” that awarded Wade 35 percent of Le Triomphe’s net profit on the project in return for overseeing community outreach, coordinating community programming and productions, and ensuring compliance with relevant laws.
