The Madison Common Council decided Tuesday night to continue work with a consultant on the controversial Judge Doyle Square project.

Alder Lisa Subeck said the council voted in favor of hiring a company to continue consulting and management services for the project with little debate.

The council voted to approve Madison Mayor Paul Soglin to contract with the developer to work on the plan that includes a city building makeover and a hotel near Monona Terrace.

The cost of the project could hit near $160 million, with completion expected in 2018 or 2019.
