      The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission held their monthly meeting Wednesday morning.

      One of the major topics of discussion revolved around several commissioners being asked to write a letter of support regarding the Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and Palmyra merger.

      Board members told Fox 31 they believe this merger will be good for our economy and they approved writing a letter of support. They believe if the transaction doesn't go through then Albany will lose around 600 jobs.
