Mule Barn gets mini facelift

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - While the dilapidated Mule Barn in downtown Albany still isn't up to code, it's looking a little better tonight. It's at least boarded up now and workers finished painting the boards Wednesday.

As we told you Monday, Recreation Department workers cleaned sidewalks and mowed weeds. The rundown structure is owned by ADICA. Director Don Buie, who's critical of rundown properties, says ADICA has to play by its own rules.

He said, "I'm true to my word. I told you that we'd take care of it , we would make recommendations to the board, the board took those recommendations rather seriously and the next day we began work."

Public Works employees nailed up and painted the boards.  The work's being paid for with sales tax money set aside for renovations on the Mule Barn.
