AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - City Commission moved a plea from the Lydia Project Tuesday to consent.
The non-profit that helps support woman battling breast cancer asked Commission for a property tax waiver. They say six weeks ago, a property tax bill for $10,616 landed on their door. They told commission they're worried it will take away from women struggling with nowhere to turn.
Executive Director Michelle Canchola said, "It's a lot of money and we can better spend that money on the women Lydia serves. Last week, we received 102 new referrals in one week."
