Ball rolling on Chehaw-Fowler agreement

August 8, 2005

Albany-- Monday night, the Parks at Chehaw authority agreed to give animal expert Jim Fowler more than 4,000 dollars so he can begin his redevelopment project at Chehaw.

The money will pay for preliminary planning. It's the first part of a 29,000 dollar four-part proposed budget from Fowler. "If we're going to pay you money, we want to know how you're going to spend the money so that's what tonight's proposal is to look at this itemized list of proposals and see if we're on track," says Park Executive Director Doug Porter.

After the preliminary planning session, the primary session will finalize preparations and suggested renovations to the park. Monday, Fowler also submitted a plan for a new Birds of Prey exhibit.

That will be be paid for with private donations from Budweiser.
