Will he or won't he head ATI?

Posted: Updated:

Albany - Albany Tomorrow Incorporated Board members won't talk about the possibility of Albany's downtown Manager doubling as ATI Director. While we know there have been talks between ATI Board members and ADICA Director Don Buie, no specific arrangements have been made.

Buie's name was thrown into the mix after then CEO Kenneth Weaver abruptly resigned January 31st after just three months on the job. At this time, there has not been a successful arrangement agreed to to bring Buie on as the organization's leader.

More discussions are likely between Buie and ATI. Because he is a city employee, any arrangement to bring Buie on board by ATI must receive the blessing of City Manager Al Lott.

The full board of Albany Tomorrow meets Wednesday. The first item on the agenda will be to meet behind closed doors to discuss personnel matters.
