Drug Unit getting closer to renovations

March 3, 2003

Albany - The Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit is one step closer to getting money for renovations.

Monday, Dougherty County Commissioners approved 35,000 dollars for the Drug Unit's new headquarters at 700 Pine Avenue. The request will only go through if the City approves to give the same amount.

The 70,000 dollars will go toward air conditioning and electrical work. In the last month, drug agents and jail inmates have painted, put down carpet, and made repairs themselves.

The Drug Unit purchased the building with confiscated drug money.
