ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) - Rockford’s city council is close to a decision on $12.7 million worth of downtown construction projects.

The Finance Committee meets Tuesday to consider a $6.2 million bid to rebuild the city’s Concourse parking deck and a $6.5 million federal loan application to support two proposed hotels.

If approved, the parking deal could come up for a council vote.

The Rockford Register Star (https://bit.ly/1LTIMf9 ) reports the federal loans would be used to help finance more than 225 new hotel rooms, restaurants and other attractions.

After previous delays, Alderman Tom McNamara says the council is “really close” to an agreement.
