ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Monday, Commissioners continued to sort through what would make up a new small business program that focuses on a businesses size and income. The old program focused on race and helping minority-owned businesses.

Commissioners Gloria Gaines and John Hayes say it is still important to minority entrepreneurs a helping hand since a disparity exists in Albany.

"We also need to help them to get to the point that they can procure, that they can do a job and see that job through so that they can bond, so that they do have the necessary financial capacities to do all the things necessary to see a job through," John Hayes County Commissioner.

The commission doesn't expect to adopt the new program until the first of February at the earliest.
