Valdosta - A South Georgia city is asking the public to help spend thousands of dollars.

Valdosta is getting $718,000.00 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The city is hosting two pubic hearings to get citizen input on how the money should be spent. Some proposed activities include housing initiatives, neighborhood planning, upgrading public facilities, and community youth programs.

"It's very important that our citizens see what programs will be available that they can access to improve their overall quality of life," said Mara Register, Community Development Director.

The first public hearing starts at 6:00 Tuesday night at the Mildred Hunter Community Center. The next hearing is Thursday night at 6:00 at City Hall Annex.
