SURRY COUNTY, N.C. -- Mount Airy city leaders agree that they want to build a mini park downtown, but the issue is how much they want to pay for it.

One option would cost $10,000, while a second would cost ten times as much.

Some commissioners are in favor of the cheaper option, but others said spending the extra money could help lift the downtown area.
