A commercial developer and The Clarion-Ledger have reached an agreement on the newspaper’s request for public records about state tax rebates.
The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/1MWuaMR ) that its attorney and an attorney for Andrew Mattiace appeared Tuesday before Hinds County Chancery Judge William Singletary. They said they had agreed on what information in the documents would be considered proprietary and would not be published.
Mattiace is the developer of Renaissance at Colony Park and proposed phases II and III.
The Clarion-Ledger filed a public records request in August for state documents about Renaissance III and the Mississippi Tourism Incentive Program, a now-defunct tax rebate.
In September, Singletary blocked the documents at Mattiace’s request. They are now being released.
