VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Mayor Gayle said there was, as of Monday, around $103,000 in federal and state funds that were available for the proposed study, though Mayor Gayle added that the study would not require that much money.
He explained that, assuming both the city and the county agreed to the study, the city and county would only have to spend approximately $10,300 each to pay for the study.
If the county doesn't agree to go along with the study, Mayor Gayle explained, the city may take another vote to fund the study itself and go ahead with the study anyway.
"You have to have this study in order for the federal government to approve that money going towards the construction," said Mayor Gayle."
As of Monday, the county commission hadn't decided whether they would go along with the study.
