City cuts Chehaw funding by 3 percent

ALBANY -- The Albany City Commission voted unanimously on Tuesday to reduce funding to The Parks at Chehaw by three percent for each of the next five years beginning next July

This is the first time Chehaw has received any funding cut from the city.

Chehaw Director Doug Porter had asked for continuation of the full $1 million in annual funding after the 2014 fiscal year.

The commission instead reduced funding by three percent, and will reduce the Park's operation budget to $882,000 by 2019.
