ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School system plans to offer retirement incentives to nearly 180 employees to save money.

On Wednesday the board instructed the finance committee to work out details of an early retirement program to trim the workforce and streamline the budget.

Anyone with 25-years vested will be offered a chance to leave their job.

"We're hopeful we may get some people considering retiring that through that attrition we will be able to eliminate a few positions. Those who might retire early we will have to replace, but we can replace them with people who won't require such a high salary," said David Maschke,School Board Chair.

The finance committee plans to make a final decision Friday.

The retirement incentive could be rolled out to employees as soon as next week.
