A government watchdog group is (predictably) critical of the lightning-quick process by which the Atlanta City Council embraced plans to fund a significant chunk of the new Falcons Stadium project. William Perry, of Common Cause of Georgia, says the council's vote was rushed and that the promised "big public conversation" never materialized. "No matter how you feel about public financing of the new stadium," Perry writes in a Creative Loafing op-ed, "the process that led to its approval has to make even the biggest citizen supporters of the project uncomfortable."
