There are two radio advertisements regarding the special election regarding the Wichita Ambassador Hotel.
Wichita Ambassador Hotel 60 second spot
What’s the real cost of the Ambassador Hotel? The out-of state developer building this project received over $3.3 million in tax increment financing, diverting money from Wichita police and fire departments. They received more than $4.2 million from the city to fund parking. The State of Kansas gave them $3.8 million in tax credits. And they got another $3.5 million in tax credits from the federal government. Now they want to keep 75% percent of the guest tax that promotes tourism in Wichita, including improvements to Century II. Why should an out-of-state developer receive sweetheart tax treatment when local taxpayers and businesses have to make up the difference? Maybe a better question is … When will it end?
