Albany entertainment company wants to help promote Civic Center

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

As city leaders discuss the future of the Albany Civic Center, an Albany entertainment company wants public money to bring three concerts to the venue this year.

Threeforty wants to enter into a partnership with the city.

They're asking for $100,000 per concert.

They would handle all the promotions, production, and vending.

Owner Justin Andrews says the Civic center is a great asset, and he doesn't want to see it torn down.

"At one time this was the mecca for music and national artists to come to and now its not so much, so we are trying to rebuild that for the community, and for the city," says Threeforty Owner Justin Andrews.

"There are so many other cities that would love to have the civic center that we have, so I think rather than talking about tearing down the civic center, we should be looking more like we are today of how we can use the Civic Center," says Director of RRecreationand Parks Joel Holmes.

City commissioners tabled the request to study it more.
