The city of Warner Robins could decide to change the make-up of its agency in charge of redevelopment and allow members of the community to hold voting positions.
Right now, the seven-member Redevelopment Agency is made up of mayor and city council members, plus a non-voting executive director.
Some council members want to see that structure change and let local developers and development experts take part and vote.
Those against the change, like Councilman Bob Wilbanks, say letting developers make decisions about projects that could benefit them does not best serve the interest of the public.
"We got elected as city councilmen to be stewards of taxpayers dollars," Wilbanks says.
"We need to accept that responsibility and we need to oversee these projects."
Council members in favor of the change -- and Mayor Chuck Shaheen -- say taking city leaders off the RDA would take out the "politics" that slow city projects down.
