City officials in Columbus have approved spending $1.3 million to stabilize two sections of the Chattahoochee River's banks that collapsed along the city's whitewater course. The Columbus City Council approved the money at a meeting on Tuesday.
The mayor of Columbus is warning of "massive layoffs" of city workers next year if the consolidated government continues on its current path. Mayor Teresa Tomlinson also accused public safety department heads Tuesday of using the threat of layoffs to "maintain possibly inflated budgets."
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and the Columbus City Council are expected to approve a resolution Tuesday opposing any reductions in the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team. The move comes a week after the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce asked residents to voice their concerns on the possible cuts.
