Radium Springs contract will cost Dougherty taxpayers less

February 11, 2008

Dougherty County -- Dougherty County leaders scale back their plan to buy and protect land near the Flint River.

It'll save taxpayer's money. The county is hoping to get a state grant to help buy the Radium Springs Country Club for recreational use.

Monday the Dougherty County Commission modified the contract to remove a little more than 10-acres from the original purchase.

"It is sensitive land because it is important to protect the river way in terms of water quality. So hopefully we will get this tract of land and get it restored to its natural state. And it will make a nice parkland setting on the Flint for folks at Dougherty County, said Citizens Greenspace Advisory Chairman, Woody Hicks.

The changes will reduce the cost by about $250, 000. Dougherty County hopes to receive this grant by April.
