City says goodbye to Cutliff Grove money

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The City of Albany will not try to recoup $374,000 in HUD money that Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center spent.

 Commissioners paid the money back to HUD, but will not be reimbursed by Cutliff Grove. They voted today to take the deed to the Cutliff Grove property, worth about $95,000, and to absorb the remainder of the loss, about $279,000 in taxpayer money.

Nearly five years ago, Cutliff Grove Baptist Church got Housing and Urban Development money to build affordable housing on Broad Avenue.

The HUD money passed through the city and was then given to Cutliff Grove. But the church lost its HUD certification, so the money must be given back to the government.

The only vote against the settlement was from Roger Marietta.
