Disappointed not to see any local contractors

I just read in the Wednesday paper about the new hotel proposed for the old RB&W site. I am greatly disappointed not to see some local contractors involved. 

Holiday Inn is eager to take money out of our community but not eager to invest in it. The city council should have asked for some consideration. We all know the two towns could have used the work.
