ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Ray Charles Plaza's been open for eight months now, but all the bugs still haven't been worked out.

Contractors will be back later this month to re-program the music and coordinate it with the lights at the plaza. There's also a drainage problem at the park.

Courtney Brinson is a member of the Albany Tomorrow Board, which is overseeing the project, but he's also the chairman of the advisory board for the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

 He says he wants to see every kink worked out before a statewide tourism conference is held in Albany next month and before football gets kicked off for Albany State University.

Brinson said, "The Albany Convention and Visitor's Bureau sells Albany as a destination. They sell attractions. They sell things to do, activities for folks to participate in when folks come to Albany and choose to spend money here."

Work at the plaza is expected to be complete by the end of the month.
