The city of Appleton would be reimbursed for the interest lost during the construction of the Fox Cities Exhibition Center, under a new proposal. The city is fronting the money to build the expo center in the downtown, until a financing deal can be put in place. So far, the tab is nearly $27 million. Ald. Ed Baranowski says that’s cost the city about $237,000 so far. He wants to get the money back from hotel room tax revenue.
