ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The county won't give additional money to the Flint Riverquarium this fiscal year. Commissioners voted this morning to deny the Riverquarium's request for an additional $25,000.

The county already gave the Riverquarium $250,000 this fiscal year. The city commission voted last week to give an additional $25,000 to the Riverquarium, on top of the $250,000 already allocated.
