Erie Mayor Joe Sinnot is weighing in on Erie County Council's vote to approve a debt guarantee to back the Erie County Convention Center Authority's hotel.

In a four-to-two vote, county council voted to back the Erie County Convention Center Authority's hotel debt guarantee of up to 60 million dollars.

The decision although considered controversial by some comes after compromise between council and the authority.

We spoke to Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott and he says he's a little disappointed the hotel situation along the bayfront became a competition between Scott Enterprises and the convention center authority.

The mayor hopes that in the future both parties can accomplish their goals and ultimately bringing the bayfront plan to fruition
