ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany-based HeritageBank of the South is getting to break ground on another location.     The new branch won't just serve local customers, it will be built by them.

LRA contractors was awarded the bid for construction.  Drawdy Roofing, Art sign company, Concrete Enterprises, and Merry Acres landscaping are other local businesses and Heritage customers that will do work on the $2.5 Million project.

Mary Beth Hobby said, "We're very excited about the Lee County branch, because not only are we going to be concentrating on building in our sector, but we're also keeping money in our area.  We love the fact that we are able to hire subcontractors that are not only great artisans themselves, but they're also HeritageBank customers.  So, we're very excited to hire local and keep the money local when possible."    

The groundbreaking for the new site is set for next Thursday, August 19th.   The new branch should be finished in April.
