ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

City commissioners are discussing how to fund the future multimodal facility. 

Commissioners have already held a public hearing to get input from residents.  Four proposed sites are on the table.  The cost ranges from $8.9 million to $11.2 million. 

This comes after the company that manages a housing complex in South Albany asked city commissioners to cut their debt by 50%.

Officials with the Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center, which manages Nativity Village, says they can't afford necessary renovations and the reserves have been used up.

They currently owe $1.4 million and want to have that cut to $716,000. Commissioner Bob Langstaff said he wants to see other alternatives.

Mayor Dorothy Hubbard asked staff to do more research.
