Commission hasn’t talked Dyess Park with historian


 Augusta leaders are trying to decide what to do the with Dyess Park Community Center. 

It’s  been closed for a year,because its in bad shape, and needs a half a million dollars in repairs.

Some Commissioners are saying instead of paying to fix it, it could be torn down for a new center.

The building dates back to the early 1890’s when it was  the city’s second  fire station
 “I hope so nobody has talked to me about it I was asked about its history by the Parks and Recreation Department so I spent some time trying to look it up to see what I could find on it but nobody on the commission has spoken  to me about it,” said Erick Montgomery of Historic Augusta

Commissioners are scheduled to take up the fate of Dyess Park on Tuesday.
