ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Sales tax money set aside for the renovation of the Mule Barn in Downtown Albany will be used to bring that building up to code.  

Half a million dollars has been allocated to renovate the dilapidated building on Broad Avenue.  

That work hasn't started, and the building has been vandalized. Broken glass remains on the sidewalk, and there are large openings where people could easily get inside.

A few hundred dollars will be used to board up the building for now. 

"We have the resources to secure the building properly, and we'll maintain it until there's the official decision of what to do with it," says County Administrator Richard Crowdis. "Those funds can help preserve or demolish it or salvage it or whatever."

 The Albany Museum of Art has a lease on the property, but the board hasn't made a final decision on whether the museum will be moved into the building.
