Moultrie - President Bush is expected to sign a bill that will get rid of a south Georgia eyesore.
If approved, the 2004 Omnibus Appropriations Funding Bill will set aside $525,000 to tear down the old Moultrie Swift building. Part of the building was demolished in 2001.
The demolition has taken so long, because the property contains hazardous materials. Mayor Bill McIntosh says, "It really has been a long time and when something sticks out in the community as an eyesore, it seems like a whole lot longer for all of us. We are excited we got the first phase behind us and that really helped a lot, but this second phase is going to the icing on the cake for this area."The area may turn into an industrial park.
Under the same bill, the Moultrie Police Department is expected to get $250,000 for new equipment and $25,000 will go toward technology upgrades at Moultrie Technical College.
