ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

A proposed tennis center for Dougherty County remains in the works, as funding gets moved around.          

Monday, commissioners reallocated SPLOST money designated for the tennis center to repair some buildings.  

Commission chairman Jeff Sinyard says more than $3 million in SPLOST money has been set aside for the center and 90% of that money is still there.   

They hope to merge this project with the city's proposed sports complex.    

"It just makes such sense to pull all this together from an investment standpoint to best utilize the taxpayers dollar and also from operation standpoint which further takes care of the taxpayers dollars and enhances the two fronts," said Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard.         

Sinyard says they're looking at various sites for the center, including near the first tee along the Flint River.

City officials say they don't have any specific details about the proposed sports complex just yet.
