Valdosta - More than six hundred military families may soon have a new home, as soon as work resumes on the Moody Family Housing Project.

The project came to a halt after many subcontractors were left unpaid by American Eagle Communities in March.

The Chamber of Commerce says they're in negotiations with a well known out-of-state contractor to come in and finish the job.

With new airmen moving to the county at the end of the summer, they say the houses will be in high demand.  "The sooner they can get to work the better. Starting around August we have roughly 1,000 new military personnel coming in from Pope and we need to have places for those folks to live," says Tim Carrol of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber.

They are also speaking with state delegation about ways to expedite the payment to the many subcontractors who still have not been paid.

They are also working to get the new company to re-hire as many subcontractors as possible.
