WARNER ROBINS — City officials in Warner Robins say plans are in the works to create a school near Robins Air Force Base to train military veterans for the private workforce.
Three Warner Robins city council members said Wednesday the city intends to pitch a 44-acre site to state lawmakers for the training center. City officials say they've discussed donating the land to the state so the center could be built.
Gov. Nathan Deal proposed the $10 million project, dubbed the Military and Veterans Academic and Training Center, in his budget to the state Legislature.
The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/XyWEin) that earlier plans for the land involved tournament softball fields. But on Jan. 16, the Warner Robins City Council voted to buy land elsewhere for a recreation complex that will include those fields.
