AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -
Eight Broad Street trees hit by February's ice storm have
been replaced, using special purpose local option sales tax revenue. But some downtown business owners don't know how they feel about it.
"I think money could be spent on making people bring their
buildings up to code, so we don't have a broken window here and gutters hanging
off here," David Parker said.
Augusta's Downtown Development Authority Executive Director, said they budgeted $500 per tree, after finding out they had money left over in the budget.
She also said the DDA also used the money to repair dangerous cracks in sidewalks the ice storm left behind.
Woodard said the city took care of that cost,
while the DDA paid for the trees. They are 15 to 20 feet tall already and are
expected to grow.
