The city of Jacksonville is set to release the contracts from the two agencies competing for management of the city's facilities on Friday.
The city and the Jaguars are supposed to make the decision together but the Jaguars have already said they want to keep SMG, and company spokesman Michael Muntz says they want to expand that to the entire city.
"We have been able to return additional savings back to the city that is in the millions."
Aside from saying they looked forward to the contract process, Munz wouldn't say much more in terms of what SMG planned to bring to the city facilities that its competitor, Global Spectrum, couldn't.
"We really think we would offer the better product to reinvigorate the complex and really begin to market and sell it the way it should be," says Global Spectrum vice president of development Todd Glickman.
Glickman says if Global Spectrum is chosen, they wouldn't be hiring hundreds of new positions, but it would create some new opportunities for part time and full time workers. He says his company's goals are growing revenues, controlling expenses, and having a fresh set of eyes on the city from an expense perspective.
The city will have to choose between the two companies at a public meeting, which has yet to be announced.
