ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority board is getting things back on track and recouping money Don Buie gave to businesses before he was fired.

Interim Director James Taylor says they are getting timely repayments for questionable facade grants given to Dollar Square owner Tim Washington and ADICA board member LaJuana Wood for her restaurant. The grants totaled roughly $90,000.

"We're tying up all the loose ends and all those issues that were questionable. There are some other things that doesn't involve ADICA like some legal issues but right now people are paying back the money and we certainly appreciate it," said Taylor.

ADICA has paid off the lease for the Dollar Square. Dougherty County formally terminated the lease in September.
