Rebuilding houses at Moody Air Force Base

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Work is set to resume on a halted housing project at Moody Air Force Base.

Subcontractors are owed millions of dollars.

They walked off the project when the old contractor, Carabetta group and American Eagle, failed to pay them.

Hunt development has now purchased the project and subcontractors will be paid up to 50% of what they are owed.

Representative Jack Kingston has been working with those sub-contractors. He hopes work will resume in a few months.

"Its a step in the right direction but also we hope they get the new contract so we can keep those jobs in Lowndes County and southwest Georgia," Kingston says.

The project scale will be smaller due to the two year delay. 206 homes need to be renovated and fifty homes constructed. The initial plan called for 400 to 600 homes.
