Macon-Bibb's elected officials say the center and the seniors who frequent it haven't been forgotten.
That's after our story last week telling you about senior citizens who say they feel overlooked without a new senior center, while a new state-of-the-art shelter for animals continues construction.
"As a priority, the animal welfare center that we had was disgraceful," Mayor Robert Reichert told 13WMAZ.
That's why the Commission fast-tracked the shelter project and construction, Reichert says.
Meanwhile, voters who backed the 2011 SPLOST also agreed to spend $2 million on a new senior center, bhat project hasn't even made it to the drawing board.
"The senior citizens I think, have been very very patient," Commissioner Elaine Lucas said. "We certainly care about human beings and we certainly do want to push now for maximizing the resources that we have."
