THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville may get water and sewage system upgrades. The city got more than 20 million dollars in grant money from The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority.

These grants function as low-interest loans which are repaid over a 20 year period. City officials say these projects are not set in stone. "We're not obligated to them. We're going to study the projects and to prioritize them to find out which ones make the best sense to include now," said Assistant City Manager Don Atkinson.

$1.2 million of the $22 million qualified for principal forgiveness, meaning that amount does not need to be repaid.

Once an evaluation on project feasibility is completed, the City Council will decide how they want to move forward.
