ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Nativity Village, a low income housing complex will get some renovation assistance from the city. The complex is currently owned by Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center. Monday night the Albany City Commission passed a resolution approving an Escrow Agreement between Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center and the city of Albany.

City leaders say they're glad they will be able to help renovate a complex that is need of dire repairs.  

"It feels good to know that we are making sure everything is being done, that we will have a process in place where it can be monitored," said Mayor Hubbard.  

Repairs to the building are set to begin in February. Money will come from revenue streams being paid by the tenants.
