LAFAYETTE, GA (Times Free Press) -
A $4 million renovation of the library in downtown
LaFayette has run out of money. So boards will go up this week over the
windows and doors of the building at 305 S. Duke St. to secure it as
construction work stops until funding is found.
"I'm heartbroken," said Lecia Eubanks, director of the Cherokee
Regional Library, which has branches in LaFayette, Chickamauga,
Rossville and Trenton. "The economy, I think, has been the biggest
culprit in all of this."
Sales and property tax revenues have been lower than anticipated, county officials say.
The renovation is 90 percent complete, Eubanks told the LaFayette City Council at its meeting Monday night.
