The Bibb County Commissioners are discussing sports.
Tennis...to be exact.
The commission gave the green light to give John Drew Tennis Center as well as Tattnall Square Park a face-lift.
All of the tennis courts will be replaced...plus a new two story pro-shop will be added.
SPLOST funds are paying for the improvements.
Executive Director of Parks and Rec, Doc Daughtery, says tennis brings a lot to the table here in Central Georgia.
Daugherty says brand new security systems will be installed at the Freedom Park and East Macon Rec Centers.
Bibb Commissioner Joe Allen says the over-all objective is to give local kids and residents a place to go.
