ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Just a week after two county employees were told their jobs were on the line, one commissioner wants to revisit the Small Business policy.

Dougherty County Commissioner Gloria Gaines says she wants the small business policy placed back on the county's agenda.

That's after just two weeks ago, the commission voted on three separate proposals, but none passed because of a lack of support.

Last week, commissioners and employees were told the office would close at the end of the month since there was no longer a policy in place to operate it.

Monday, Gaines told her fellow commissioners she wants to revisit the policy and vote again.

"And I know that I'm going to have to compromise on this issue," said Gaines. " I'm gong to have to accept something less than ideal in my mind, so I'm asking that we reconsider it and look at what we have and what the majority of the commission, I hope, will be able to vote on and it boils down to, something is better than nothing."

 The commission has been discussing the small business policy for nine months now and still hasn't come up with an agreement.
