GRADY CO., GA (WALB) - Grady County commissioners have approved the spending of $500,000 to design for amenities at Tired Creek Lake.

The dam is nearing completion and officials are preparing for the next phase of the project. The county is looking to apply for grants and wants to make sure that they've done their part to be eligible.

“We can't even apply for grant funds, if we don't get the plans put together, we have to be able to build off of plans, so we absolutely have to do this,” said county administrator Carlos Tobar.

They hope to get grant money to finished the lake itself and offset the cost of recreational amenities around the lake.
