ATLANTA SEEKS $10 MILLION FROM ACOG TO COVER BILLS
Published November 22, 1994
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).
