ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority is getting a bailout from the city.  City commissioners plan to pay the troubled agency's debts, and they may help fund its budget in the future.

Interim Director James Taylor told commissioners ADICA currently owes about $35,000 in back rent, legal fees and other expenses. The commissioners tentatively voted to pay those debts but will wait until the ADICA board develops bylaws and a concrete budget before providing any more money. 

"We are asking to support the effort as they have done in the past," said Taylor. "For many years, ADICA got a stipend from the city somewhere between $135,000 and $150,000 a year to operate on because ADICA generates no real revenue."

Several ADICA board members attended today's city commission meeting. They say they need city support to carry out programs like facade grants and downtown events.
