ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It appears the Payroll Development Authority has been left holding the bill after MacGregor defaulted on the lease for their building in the Pecan Grove Industrial Park.

Thursday the Payroll Development Authority agreed to make the two $8,400 back payments for June and July. They say MacGregor has been unreachable since they vacated the building in June. The authorities approved the payments because they say it's important to keep the building a viable option for businesses considering Albany.

"This is a building that even in today's economy is valued between two and three million dollars. It sits on 25 acres of land, water and sewer, the building's in excellent condition," said Jeff Sinyard, Payroll Development Authority Chairman.

GolfSmith recently purchased the rights to the MacGregor's name and the Payroll Development Authority attorney plans to pursue them for some sort of settlement over MacGregor's lease agreement for that building.
