ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

After a missed meeting, city officials are waiting for the Panthers to evacuate the Albany Civic Center.

City Manager Wes Smith says the Panthers owner Rod Chapelle failed to attend a meeting that he scheduled with city officials last Thursday. Smith says the team is ready to move forward following the failed meeting.

"In fact we are making arrangements to make sure that they have all of their equipment and whatever out of the office so that we can close it up and turn off the utilities," Smith said. "You know maybe it's time has come, you know they were challenged last year. To keep the team going, has become too much for them."

Last week, the city of Albany released a document stating that their lease with the P-I-F-L team was terminated to due unpaid fees. Later that day, the Panthers said that they will work with the league to help find a solution with the city.

The Panthers won two PIFL titles.
