ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The City of Albany will decide whether to continue funding ATI, and if they vote no, ATI will disband.

ATI Chairman C. W. Grant says the board can't survive without the $150,000 from the city for development fees.

"If the city says there's no more funding, the developer fees that we get from the projects cannot sustain ATI, so we would have to start down sizing.  We'd have to do everything that a business would have to do to project a closing date," Grant said.

If ATI disbands, the city will take over its projects, which include the BridgeHouse, the Civil Rights Museum and the Ray Charles Plaza.
