Chambliss talks Moody Housing

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Senator Saxby Chambliss is confident work will restart on the failed Moody Housing project soon.

He says the purchase negotiations are still underway between the Air Force and a new contractor.

They will inherit the project, which has been sitting behind locked gates for a year and a half.

That's when sub-contractors walked off the job after the contractor American Eagle stopped paying.

They are still owed millions of dollars.

Senator Chambliss says work will soon continue but on a smaller scale.

"We've got a number of houses that are just shells.  Unfortunately because of the weather, we are going to have to loose all those shells out there that were unprotected and it's just unfortunate that we had a renegade contractor in here that didn't perform the way they should have," Chambliss says.

Chambliss hopes the deal will be signed in the next 60 to 90 days and work to resume shortly after that.
