A $225,230 engineering and master plan for Augusta Recreation, Parks and Facilities has been pulled from Monday’s Public Services committee agenda because it conflicts with a $100,000 organizational assessment of the department included in the 2015 budget.
Saying she had moderate to high support for the assessment, Administrator Janice Allen Jackson included it in the 2015 budget package to take “a deliberate and strategic approach to making cuts,” with any leftover funds to assess other city departments.
WHERE: A garden plot on the corner of 5th and Reynolds streets, an entranceway to downtown Augusta from South Carolina. A marker there designates U.S. Highway 1 as a Blue Star Memorial Highway, a National Garden Club program to honor veterans.
