The Dougherty County Board of Commissioners met Monday for their regularly scheduled meeting. Commissioners discussed several issues including a sewage expansion for the new Albany-Dougherty industrial park on Sylvester Road.

The Commission had discussed the possibility of the expansion at their work session last week, and voted to approve the expansion on Monday.

"It's important that we have the sewage, water, and all the infrastructure in place so that potential tenants know they're moving into a ready-to-go facility," said Chairman Jeff Sinyard.

Funds will be used through SPLOST funding to build the sewer expansion.
