Chehaw closer to decision about Fowler

Albany- For weeks, the people in charge of Chehaw have struggled with whether to let animal expert Jim Fowler and his team of experts get involved.

Monday night, they asked him more questions about how his plans would affect employees, what parts of the park he wants to change and how the finances would work.

Fowler is supposed to have a written proposal in two weeks to answer those questions. He continues to insist he can help turn the park around.

"I'm more and more convinced that the city of Albany needs some help from the outside," he said. "But there needs to be another look taken and change taking place here and I think the people on the authority are beginning to realize if something isn't done pretty quickly the monies may not be there like they have in the past."

The authority will vote on October 18th on whether to move forward with plans that include Fowler.
