ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Downtown Albany leaders are working with a new consultant to continue redevelopment efforts.
The ADICA board voted tonight to work with Development Authority Attorney Dan McRae to redefine the roles of ADICA and the Downtown Development Authority.
He'll also provide legal expertise for financing specific projects.
"We really want to make sure that we gain the trust and support of the public to ensure that we are doing development deals moving forward that we are doing things that are legal and that we are doing them legally, structuring them legally and that we are also maximizing the public benefit and minimizing the risk to the city," said Downtown Manager Latoya Cutts.
ADICA budgeted $5,000 for the work, but the cost will be based on the number of hours McRae works.
