LEESBURG, GA (WALB) –   It's back to the drawing board for another Lee County project.

Commissioners voted Tuesday night to reject current bids for a new library and conference because they came in more than a million dollars over budget.

SRJ Architects will now re-design a scaled back project. 

"We have directed SRJ to redesign the complex and reduce the seating capacity of the library conference center in order to come within budget. The board approved a budget of $5.2 million and this new design is going to be structured to try to get within the $5.2 million dollar budget," said Commission Chairman Ed Duffy.

It will be at least six months before the new design comes before the board.
