Albany --  It will cost an Albany chemical company more than seven thousand dollars to clean up a spill that closed South Slappey Boulevard for six hours earlier this month.  

More than 60 pounds of the highly toxic chemical Temik spilled July 5th when containers tumbled from a Helena Chemical truck.

Albany Police, Fire, Dougherty County EMS and Albany Dougherty EMA sent manpower to the scene. The cost for that manpower comes in at $2,159.29.

The equipment used, minus the cost of a few Albany Police units was around five thousand dollars for a grand total of $7,371.14.

Helena Chemical must reimburse the city and the county agencies. The driver was cited for the incident.
