SACRAMENTO  (AP) — The city of Sacramento is calling for a river cruise company to bring a historic vessel to the Sacramento River.
Durng the recession city officials helped keep Hornblower Cruises & Events afloat. Now, officials are asking the company to keep its end of the bargain and bring a paddleboat or steam-driven vessel to town.
Sacramento Director of Convention and Cultural Services says they want the historic vessel to be in the water by April 1 and doing commercial business by May 1.
City documents show Sacramento issued Hornblower a notice of default last year for failure to operate a historic vessel. The cruise company now operates a modern boat called Capitol Hornblower in Old Sacramento.
