Washington behind on payments, Woods pays up

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A former Downtown Albany store owner, who pleaded guilty to theft by conversion in the Don Buie scandal, is now behind on payments to the inner city authority.

He could end up in jail because of it. As part of his plea deal, Former downtown Dollar Square owner Tim Washington agreed to pay back a $40,000 facade grant he received from former downtown manager Don Buie.

He's supposed to pay $500 a month, but he's missed the past two payments. That's a violation of his probation.

Asst. City Manager Wes Smith said, "It's my understanding that Mr. Washington is behind on payments and a letter of acceleration requiring total payment has been sent to him. We've also notified his probation officer and the District Attorney's office. Of course, whatever actions they would take would be on their own."

Former ADICA board member Lajuana Woods also reached an agreement with the ADICA board to repay her $50,000 facade grant.

She was behind on her payments but made two $2500 payments Tuesday to catch up.
