Albany - A downtown Albany property owner is suing Dougherty County and Albany Tomorrow Incorporated for nearly $400,000 dollars. 

The Property owned by Johnny George was part of a deal reached with Dougherty County and ATI in February for 190,000 dollars. Shortly after the deal was made, ATI and the County offered to pay him only 169,000 dollars.

George, in his lawsuit, wants Dougherty County, and ATI to make good on their offer of 190,000 dollars, as well as 1,600 dollars for each month that the property was not rented during negotiations, which began in December 2002.

George is asking for an additional 190,000 dollars from ATI in punitive damages.
