Melton Not Satisfied with King Edward Progress

Mayor Frank Melton of Jackson says he is disappointed at the progress on renovating the old King Edward Hotel and is rethinking the whole process. 

He says he has another company that can do the job and he is worried because the company doing the hotel, also now has the Standard Life building renovation as well. 

One of the big investors in both projects is New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister.  The projects are worth over $100 million.  The lead local developer on the projects, attorney David Watkins, says they are on schedule and will be completed in the Spring quarter of 2009.
