ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The owner of a downtown Albany business, ordered to pack up and move out, is doing what he was told.

The shelves are bare inside Dollar Square on North Jackson Street. Workers were inside late Tuesday night packing up items.

Last week, the Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority sent store owner Tim Washington a certified letter ordering him to move out within 10 days and pay $4,900 in back rent.

ADICA is also demanding he repay thousands of dollars in facade grants he was awarded by former ADICA CEO Don Buie without the board's approval.
