“The authority maintains control over the ultimate decision,” he said. “If we don’t like the terms, the authority doesn’t have to approve that. It hasn’t relinquished control of its property.”

Pawlowski said he voted no because he objected to an exclusivity agreement in the contract with Rockefeller. He also doesn’t like language in the contract that allows the developer to walk away if it doesn’t like an appraisal. And he also said the authority must pay a fixed six percent commission price “for anything, which is a negative for us.”

The mayor said his vote has nothing to do with the authority recently rejecting his proposal to sell all or part of Queen City Airport.

Everett said there is no exclusivity agreement in the contract with Rockefeller.
