Atlanta may have to come up with a lot more cash if it wants to secure the proposed site for a new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons.

Friendship Baptist Church, one of two churches sitting on sites proposed for the stadium, has rejected a $13.5 million offer for its building and property, Atlanta officials have confirmed.

Mayor Kasim Reed, in an exclusive interview with 11 Alive news, said the church entered a counterproposal of $24.54 million.
