ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Tomorrow Incorporated will continue to play a role in downtown development, at least for now.

City leaders questioned whether they should continue to fund ATI since the group failed to reach 70-percent of goals set by the city. ATI leaders said they would have to disband if they lost the city money.

Wednesday night, City Manager Alfred Lott told commissioners a binding contract influenced his decision to recommend that the city include $150,000 in their budget for ATI. Last year they signed a two-year agreement.

"We plan to stay close to the projects and when the contract expires, if needed we can take over and manage any projects that are left over," said Lott.

Commissioner Morris Gurr said despite the contract, he questioned why the city should keep handing over money since ATI did not meet standards that were supposed to be mandatory.  

Both Gurr and Commissioner Bob Langstaff voted against proposed budget Wednesday night.
