Bowling Green City Commission met in closed session Thursday evening to discuss the commercial wrap of the parking garage in Block 6 of the Tax Increment Financing district.

Hitcents Park Plaza has had financial problems, and liens have been filed on the property for money unpaid to contractors in its construction. Mariah’s and 6-4-3 restaurants closed “until further notice” two weeks ago.

No vote was taken after the meeting, which lasted nearly two hours. Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken and Doug Gorman, chairman of the Warren County Downtown Economic Development Authority, attended part of the meeting.

It was closed for discussions related to property sale, proposed litigation and “discussion concerning a specific proposal, as open discussions would jeopardize the retention, expansion or upgrading of the business related to the Downtown Tax Increment Financing … District Block 6 wrap development,” according to the city’s agenda.
