(DENVER POST) Two weeks after the Denver City Council's delay of an airport Chick-fil-A lease attracted national attention and conservative scorn, a committee on Tuesday unanimously approved it.
The 5-0 vote signals that the concession deal at Denver International Airport likely will face little or no turbulence in the full council in coming weeks. Council members who had raised questions about the operators' nondiscrimination policies, as well as about Chick-fil-A's past political activity, said they were satisfied with the answers they got.
"I don't have any concerns about moving this forward based on what I've learned in the last two weeks," said Councilwoman Robin Kniech, who isn't on the committee but was among council members who spoke up at an Aug. 18 meeting of the Business Development Committee.
