Albany - Downtown business owners say a Federal Judge's ruling against them won't stop their fight for justice. Judge Louis Sands denied their request for an injunction to stop development of a downtown hotel.

Monday night, businesses owners told city leaders that they weren't fairly compensated for relocating their businesses, many of which have been downtown for decades.

"The businesses that exist currently should not be put into a precarious situation of being displaced absolutely from generating or conducting business," said Edward Allen, business owner.

Judge Sands said an injunction would jeopardize the funding for the downtown hotel.

And yet another hassle caused by the delayed Albany election - City leaders are putting off employee contract negotiations and board appointments.

The current contracts for the city manager, city attorney, city clerk, and assistant clerk expired Monday, January 12, 2004. City commissioners didn't resign the employees and said contract negotiations should be left to the new commission.

Appointments to all city boards were also delayed until February 11, 2004 - the day after the election.
