Albany - Dougherty County is nearly finished cleaning up after Hurricane Jeanne. Public works crews continue to remove downed trees and limbs from yards and streets.

County Public Works Director Gerald Kirksey says the clean-up cost about $10,000, much less than he expected. "We worked this past Saturday which ran about $2,100. And, we feel like we'll have two more, eight-hour days of clean up unless today's publicity brings on additional work," said Kirksey.

County residents are responsible for taking their yard trimmings and debris to the dump or burning it, but county public works will help remove some large limbs or trees.
