It looks like there are more delays in the effort to build a new hotel at Sacramento International Airport. The developer says he needs additional time to start work because of a shortage of sub-contractors. Sonya Sorich with the Sacramento Business Journal says the project has been in-the-works for a long time.

"A Los Angeles-based developer has been working for four years to bring this hotel to the airport, which would have the Hyatt Place brand," says Sorich. "But the county has been seeking a hotel at the airport for more than a decade. Now if you remember, the previous host airport hotel was demolished when officials decided to expand the new terminal and the parking garage at the airport."

The earliest estimate for when construction on the project could begin is now fall of 2018.

Sonya also tells us about: the Lincoln City Council's vote this week to ban any new large solar arrays through the end of next May; and changes to the Macy's in downtown Sacramento.
