New arena location before end of year official says

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis is weighing in on the arena issue.

In a letter Monday to Coliseum Authority Chairman Cedric Johnson, the mayor urges the Coliseum Authority to get behind and support a new arena at the downtown location.

Last week, Johnson told commissioners that progress on that was being held up by four authority members who refused to support it.

There was a motion to fire those four members, but the city attorney advised commissioners not to do that.
