LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Details of the Omni Hotel project will not come before the Metro Council on Thursday after all.

WDRB reported earlier today that the council's tentative agenda included placeholders for three ordinances related to Metro- and state-subsidized project to build a 600-room hotel, upscale grocery store and 200-unit apartment complex downtown.

But the ordinances were removed from the council's final agenda, which was posted Wednesday afternoon.

Asked this morning about the project's status, Fischer would say only that his staff is still working a final agreement and gave no indication of a timeline. 

The $261 million development was first announced in March and is expected to be built starting next year.
