GRAMBLING — If all goes as planned, the City of Grambling is zeroing in on constructing a new hotel, as Brandon Comer, with Comer Capital Group, gave the progress of the development before the City Council during its regularly-scheduled March meeting.
Although Comer was scheduled to update the city during its tax increment financing (TIF) district meeting on March 7, for unstated reasons Comer was unable to make the meeting and instead gave the update during the council meeting.
