Moultrie - Millions of dollars are handed out to bring in more jobs to south Georgia.

Governor Sonny Perdue presented One Georgia EDGE checks Wednesday morning in Moultrie.

Together, Adel and Moultrie were awarded more than three million dollars to buy land for Sanderson Farms.

Grady County will get $750,000 to build a manufacturing facility for Higdon Furniture Company.

Those three businesses will create more than 1600 jobs in our area. Governor Perdue says, "I think it's a shame people have to leave a community because of lack of economic opportunity and go to an urban area and miss the wonderful lifestyle we have in our rural communities.'

The One Georgia Authority board voted to add six more Georgia counties to the list of those who can get One Georgia money.

Eligible counties need to have less than 50,000 people and a poverty rate of ten percent or greater.
