AUGUSTA, Ga (WJBF) Augusta commissioners debating what projects need to be funded in the next phase of the sales tax.
One proposal from an outside organization is calling for a massive James Brown Museum and Conference area to be located at Dyess Park.
The proposal coming with a $50 million dollar funding request.
But supporters are downplaying the request.
“I don’t know where the $50 million dollar figure came from, I don’t know where the 175 thousand square foot project came from or a place that will accommodate a thousand people, I don’t know where those numbers came from,” said Commissioner Bill Fennoy.
Commissioners have scheduled a work session in two weeks so all the non governmental organizations wanting sales tax money can make a presentation.
