BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Brunswick and Glynn County officials are trying to strike a deal over funds designated for a conference center.

More than $3 million in tax revenue has been collected for the project over nearly 15 years. City and county officials agreed during a recent joint meeting that the project should move forward.

The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1OM5mcj ) reports county officials want to spend tax money remodeling the downtown public library to include a 400-person conference center. Brunswick Mayor Cornell Harvey has backed converting an old JC Penney store into a conference center.

More talks are expected in October.
