City of Jacksonville Makes Major Error
The news got out when city hall made a copy of the letter available to the local newspaper, the Times-Union. Jaguars owner Shad Khan was quick to respond, sending a rather terse letter to Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, emphasizing how the team was in full compliance with abiding by terms of the lease by following the terms of the agreement.
In the letter, Khan used such phrases as that he was "shocked," "perplexed" and "at a loss." He said that the city took an "unprecedented" step by saying the team had defaulted.
It took only hours for Brown to respond, first sending an apologetic letter to Khan and the city sending a second letter to the Jaguars, withdrawing its charge, calling it a "misunderstanding."
The dispute revolves around the city's desire to open a bid process for the contract to oversee the operations at EverBank Field and several other city-owned entertainment venues. Two companies -- SMG which has managed the facilities since 1991, and Global Spectrum -- submitted proposals for the job. The Jaguars had sent the city a letter saying it favored retaining SMG to serve as the facilities manager.
That's when the city's General Counsel Cindy Laquidara responded with the default letter last Friday. The mix-up appears to stem from a city document which lays out procedures in how to pick the manager and an amendment to the proposal that Laquidara said she was not aware of.
It's likely that the two sides will reach a quick agreement on the matter as both need the other in order to survive and be financially successful.
