Commissioners have loan questions

January 18, 2005

Albany-- The Parks at Chehaw is asking the City for money to help animal expert Jim Fowler revamp the zoo.

Tuesday, City Commissioner Tommy Postell read a letter from the Park Authority requesting a $100,000 loan. The money will go to help Jim Fowler start private fundraising to pay for changes at the zoo.

But commissioners are still split on whether to allow Fowler to take over and to give public money to private developers.

Commissioners made no decision on the $100,000 loan Tuesday. And they want a detailed business plan from Jim Fowler, explaining his plans for the zoo and how he expects to pay for it.
