ADICA chief search underway

February 6, 2007

Albany --  Albany City Commissioners want to move forward with plans to bring in a new downtown Manager.

Tuesday, commissioners told City Manager Alfred Lott to move forward with a nation wide search for the downtown manager who will work for The Albany Dougherty County Inner City Authority, or ADICA. 

The manager will work with downtown business owners and merchants to ensure a more pedestrian friendly environment downtown. The city commission decided to hold off on renewing a contract with Albany Tomorrow, that would fund ATI with $150,000 a year for the next two years.

"My holdup is I want to make sure that the taxpayers are getting what they deserve for their money," said City Commissioner Bob Langstaff, Jr. "That we need to identify what exactly we want ATI to do."

 City Commissioners are planning to revisit the issue of providing ATI with money.  We'll have more information about the proposal tonight on WALB NEWS 10 at eleven.
