ATLANTA - Questions about free football tickets for an Atlanta agency amid the creation of a new downtown stadium have sparked an ethics review.
The development came at the request of Councilmember Felicia Moore, soon after Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland asked her reaction to a provision that called for Invest Atlanta to receive free premium tickets to Falcons games and other events to be held at the new stadium.
Moore and fellow councilmember Michael Bond expressed doubt that the provision was legal.
Invest Atlanta said the tickets would be used as an economic development tool to promote current and future business prospects in the city.
