JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A special meeting has been called for the Jonesboro Advertising and Promotion Commission.

The commission will hold the special meeting Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the council chambers at the Jonesboro Municipal Center.

The meeting was called so that the commission can respond to a letter submitted by O’Reilly Management which asked the group to revisit its support for the convention center project at Arkansas State University, according to Dr. Bill Smith, communications director at A-State.

This comes two months after the A&P Commission voted to fund the Keller Family Hotel and Convention Project instead.

Smith said the university has not made any request from A&P for the project.
