The City of Auburn's Downtown Development Authority (DDA) received its fiscal year 2011-12 approved operating budget at a business meeting May 25 at city hall.
For FY 2011-12, the DDA is budgeting $52,000 in total expenses – of that amount, $25,000 is slated to go to part-time wages and the majority of the larger breakdowns will go to marketing and advertising.
The DDA will continue to have one part-time position. Its objectives for the year include soliciting business owners and developers to come into downtown Auburn and to create a new business package with the city planner and licensing and permit department.
The DDA will continue to have a hard time attracting new business owners into Auburn as long as you have that Mickey Mouse Police force! I wouldn't even consider moving my business to Auburn or Barrow county Ga. Not with those criminals in your Police department. Good Luck!! You'll need it!!
