Major Owensboro Hotel Closing

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The Executive Inn Rivermont's days appear numbered in Owensboro.

Officials say people staying at the hotel are being told to be out by Sunday. And businesses inside the hotel are being told they have 30 days to vacate.

Jim Voyles of Total Market Concepts, a sports marketing company with an office in the hotel, says he was initially told by Executive Inn staff members on Friday to move his business out by Sunday. He says he was later told that businesses could remain in the hotel for 30 days.

The looming closing is causing people to scramble to seek new accommodations in Owensboro. Voyles says the hotel was booked by people planning to attend a 16-and-under Fast Pitch National Championship this summer.

And officials at the local performing arts center have been told to move out all crews staying at the hotel. The crews are in town for the International Mystery Writers Festival.
