Flake says he didn't vote on Tech Park accelerator lease

Posted By on Thu, Apr 10, 2014 at 5:37 PM

Questions were raised this morning after the Little Rock Technology Park voted to go forward with a lease on property in which the seller was represented by Dick  Drew Holbert, who works with board member Dickson Flake at Colliers International. Indeed, board member Jay Chesshir thanked Flake at last night's meeting for his work on the deal, to lease property in the Block 2 building at the corner of Main and Markham for an accelerator and co-working space.

Buckley O'Mell, who handles inquiries for the board, checked with Flake on the voice vote taken last night and was told by the realtor that he had abstained. The motion to approve was contingent on getting construction costs down to $180,000, which is what the landlord has agreed to pay for, and the city's approval of the park's appropriation of its sales-tax funded account for rent.
