AUGUSTA, Ga (WJBF) Supporters of a new arena in Augusta are celebrating. Voters went to the polls and overwhelmingly approved financing for the facility. A half-cent increase in the local sales tax will cover the cost of the nearly 250-million dollar James Brown Arena. Augusta Commissioner Sean Frantom talks about the benefits of the new building. He also gives us a glimpse at the timeline for demolishing the current JBA, and constructing a new one. Watch our interview and you’ll know what’s coming when it comes to Augusta’s arena.
