Alexandria Council passes resolution regarding Bentley Hotel

The Alexandria City Council voted 4 to 3 to pass a resolution that allows the Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce’s executive board to discuss with the Second Century Benthle Group’s members the possibility of a public/private collaborative to “restore, renovate and reopen the historic Hotel Bentley in downtown Alexandria to a superior quality and service level reminiscence of its prior glory.”

Councilman Charles F. Smith was absent and Councilman Chuck Fowler voted against the resolution.

Fowler said he voted against the resolution because he didn’t have enough information.

“I had no other details other than what was presented. It seems like I was in the dark,” he said.

A video of the meeting will be posted later today.
