Albany -- The Albany Tomorrow, Inc. president asks ATI board members to campaign for Dougherty County Commissioners to continue funding the project developer.

Tommy Chatmon wants board members to attend county commission work sessions and meetings in the next week. This week, Commissioners questioned whether they should give ATI any money since the County does not have many sales tax projects for the developer to manage anymore.

Usually, the County pays ATI $150,000 a year. "I think it is important that we demonstrate our interest, as several of you did Monday morning at the work session with our appearance," Chatmon said.

Chatmon asked County Commissioners this week for $100,000. The county's finance committee will study a funding recommendation for ATI.
