A Statesboro City Council decision rendered last year will result in up to $75,000 of reimbursements paid to a local business seeking equal treatment. The council unanimously approved a motion Tuesday to reward reimbursements for expenses - TAP fees and building costs - incurred during construction of The Belle House on Westside Road late last year. Council voted Tuesday to reward the event venue between $70,000 and $75,000 in honor of "fairness" after deciding in September last year to wave fees associated with tapping into city services for the recently constructed Clubhouse project on Old Register Road.
