Church group wants better assistance from county

September 8, 2005

Albany- Leaders of a south Georgia church say leaders in one area county aren't doing enough to help them house hurricane evacuees. .

Life Christian Center International is leasing the old Nike missile base in Worth County while they work to buy it.

Utilities were turned on Friday and they're working quickly to make the necessary repairs, but they say Worth County officials are putting up resistance.

"The spirit really hasn't been a spirit or cooperation with us they've really been telling us what we can't do instead of showing us what we can do to comply," said Stan Glass, Christian Center International Pastor.

Worth County Commission Chairman Dan Miller says the county is not trying to stop the project but will require the church to go through proper zoning procedures. Miller claims the commission is questioning the project to protect the taxpayers of Worth County.

By contrast, Albany leaders sped up the inspection process of the old Boyette Village military housing so another church can use it to house evacuees.
