Viewpoint: Commission reverses itself on Cutliff Grove

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Albany city commission was about the give up on recouping more than a quarter of a million dollars on the Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center Project that never even broke ground.

Thank goodness, enough concerned taxpayers spoke up and the commission reversed itself.

The commission is now asking the District Attorney to investigate just what happened to the money.

It is about time. These are our tax dollars. Property tax payers are footing the bill. The tax payers deserve an accounting of what happened to the money.

Taxpayers need to know if the money was actually spent on preparations for this housing project. If not, who ended up with the money.

We trust our District Attorney's office will get to the bottom of this and hold responsible parties, accountable.
