The Auburn City Council scheduled a special called meeting 7 p.m. Monday to address the future of the city's bus system and the budget.
Notice of the meeting at 4 p.m. came just hours after city officials learned a proposed apartment complex they were hoping to attract to the town did not get the state tax credits the project needed. The proposed Auburn Hills project was not on the list released Friday of projects approved for the credits, although two other Barrow County projects were on the final list.
"We of course are disappointed; the staff certainly worked diligently to meet the need for our community," said Mayor Linda Blechinger. "We will meet to discuss the vehicle that was donated to us by (the developer). We always said if we did not get the apartments we would decide whether to sell it or keep it for city use. We will also discuss the budget and see where we can adjust."
