Skate park close to new ownership

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The city of Albany is a step closer to reopening the downtown skate park that's been closed for months.

The Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority finalized a management contract Wednesday which they'll offer to Lane Rosen.

He'll be able to operate the park rent-free for four months and then pay $200 a month for the next 8 months.

ADICA board members aren't worried about making a profit.

They just want to see the park open.

"This move is about getting the park open and it's something for the kids to do and having the park open to the community. This has nothing to do with ADICA making any money," says Phil Cannon, ADICA Board Member.

If Rosen agrees to the contract, he'll take over July 1st.

The city hopes to open the skate park in the next few days under temporary management of the recreation department.
