ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Parks at Chehaw continues to work for financial independence. The city gives Chehaw a million dollars a year for operating expenses.

Chehaw now wants to raise more money, and they see improved customer service as one way to do that.

"Just to see the glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel in terms of fund raising, in terms of better supporting the park on a day to day basis. They gave us a lot of good tips on how we can tweak the membership programs. Those are things we can do right now," said Executive Director, Doug Porter.

The Parks at Chehaw will also hire someone who will focus on fundraising.
