OGDEN, Utah -- The Utah a Attorney General's office says Ogden officials haven't violated the terms of a $900,000 state grant and can keep the money.

That's despite plans for a high-tech education center falling through.

Ogden officials wanted to develop the center in the old American Can Co. building.

In his contract review, Assistant Attorney General William C. Loos (LOOSE) says the city's made a good-faith effort to make it happen, but ran into problems.

The governor's Office of Economic Development called for the contract after a local property owner lodged a complaint, saying the city should pay back the money.

The American Can facility was recently sold to a Colorado developer.

Outdoor gear and apparel manufacturer Amer Sports Inc. plans to move to the building, which has been renamed AmeriCan Center.

The building will also house the DaVinci Academy of Science and the Arts.
