Albany-- A welcomed windfall for Dougherty County sales tax coiffeurs.

An additional 5.7 million dollars has been added to sales tax four, thanks to unanticipated interest income and bond revenues. Some of that money may be used to create a new industrial park.

EDC President Tim Martin says, "The time to make investments in your community is when things are down. And the city and county have historically done that. The EDC is the arm of the city and county it helps make things happen, we believe this will pay dividends to the community."

Economic Development Commission President Tim Martin asked for 1.7 million dollars for the industrial park. Commissioners are also looking at a request for 1.25 million dollars for a spec building at the new park.
