ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority hopes to make strides in downtown development in the upcoming fiscal year.

Wednesday evening, the board approved a recommended budget they'll forward to the city commission for approval.

They hope to get $100,000 to help operate the Civil Rights Institute, another $100,000 for the Flint Riverquarium, and $50,000  to put on and market downtown events.

"We want people to know the events that are going on," said Thelma Johnson, Chairman. "We want to have more traffic as we develop. We want more people into downtown and take advantage of the facilities and the amenities that are coming to downtown."

City commissioners will look at ADICA's proposal at their next meeting.
