Fowler/Chehaw will work together

October 18, 2004

Albany - In an unanimous vote, the Parks at Chehaw Authority voted to allow animal expert Jim Fowler to help operate the park. The authority hopes Fowler will lure more visitors.

Fowler wants to revamp the zoo, add new exhibits and rides, and improve the park. The authority chairman, park director, and Fowler will now discuss a contract to pay Fowler to design, develop, operate, and promote the entire park.

"Jim Fowler is well recognized around the world," said Authority Chairman Dr. William Bates. "I think it will just be a great asset for the park."

Earlier this year, Fowler promised to generate enough money within five years to keep the park from relying on city subsides. Fowler was not at Monday night's authority meeting.
