What is going on with South Florida’s bid to land Amazon’s new headquarters? Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and the leaders behind Miami’s effort want to keep things securely under wraps, according to the Miami Herald. Andres Viglucci reports that non-disclosure agreements are involved, writing:
The Miami Commission voted unanimously and with no discussion to allow the city manager and other administrators to sign non-disclosure agreements regarding information about the regional Amazon bid, which is being led by the Miami-Dade Beacon Council. The 5-0 vote came a week after the council, a business-development group, asked all participants to sign secrecy agreements, according to sources close to the project.
