ALBANY, GA (WALB) - As Albany city leaders prepare their upcoming budget, the Parks at Chehaw are awaiting to see if they will see financial cuts.
Chehaw is very worried about possible cuts, and asked the Albany City Commission meeting to maintain their funding for the next five years.
The City of Albany wants Chehaw to become independently owned, but leaders of the park don't believe they can fully sustain that role right now.
The park is in the process of adding new attraction for visitors, with summer season starting soon, and a new splash park coming to the park next month.
Chehaw's director said they should be able to bring in new visitors but with more funding, they could add in more fun expansions like zip lines and camping areas.
They say this will help them to get the goal of becoming financially independent.
Meeks is not asking for more money, they just want the city to be behind their projects.
