ATLANTA -- The city of Atlanta has been losing millions of dollars by leasing Underground Atlanta. Now officials are preparing to take it back.
The city has been paying $8 million a year to keep Underground Atlanta running. It has only received $100,000 a year in return -- all for a property that is widely considered a failure.
Underground Atlanta was once Atlanta's heart. But it has become a haunt, damaging downtown's reputation and draining the city's budget.
