The city of Atlanta’s economic development authority will have to wait and see if it will be granted premium seating at the new Falcons stadium.
Invest Atlanta asked the city’s ethics board to overturn a previous ruling and allow the authority free, premium seating at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The seats would be used to attract business, but the group argues it has essentially paid for the seats through bond financing.
The board heard Invest Atlanta’s formal request then, but a source told Carr that Invest Atlanta’s recent letter outlined its “intent to include premium seating in the contract for the new stadium for economic development purposes.”
