Albany - In order to attract more businesses to Albany-Dougherty County, the Economic Development Commission needs more money. The EDC is asking for an additional $25,000 from both the city and county commissions.

A large portion of that money will go toward upgrading the website. "We have found out that a lot of times we're being looked out without even knowing that we're being looked at because they are on the website, checking on everything that's going on in the community. Looking at demographics, educational opportunities. Everything that the website makes available," said EDC Chairman Bobby McKinney.

The EDC will also spend more than $200,000, from reserves, on a consulting service to update the master plan.
