  • ATLANTA SEEKS $10 MILLION FROM ACOG TO COVER BILLS

         The city of Atlanta wants Olympic organizers to "establish a
    $10 million umbrella account to repay the city for its costs
    associated with the '96 Games."  ACOG needs to approve the funds
    that would cover "feeding city firefighters, to setting up
    computer linked command posts."  The city would send ACOG a
    running tab of expenses to be covered by the fund, whose balance
    would not dip below $10M, enabling the "city to make withdrawals
    on a pay-as-you-go basis" (Lyle Harris, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    11/22).
