Today, winning competitors for 150 concession and retail spaces at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport are expected to be announced, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As we reported, the first-round proposals were thrown out due to errors (aka screwy politics). "If all goes according to plan," the City Council's transportation committee will now look at concessionaires the city recommends for approval in the second round (names like Manuel's Tavern and The Varsity). The contracts, which usually last at least seven years, include concessions for the new international terminal. Fears of continued screwiness abound.
