Big check means big plans for Colquitt County

September 17, 2007

Moultrie -- A nice surprise for the Moultrie-Colquitt County Development Authority, a $120,000 check from the federal Economic Development Authority.

Only seven communities got the money across the country. They plan to put the money to good use.

"We're trying to think of a use of funds we couldn't meet in other areas. We're trying to use this for economic development to bring jobs to the community, bring new industries to town, and retirement and tourism are a part of that," said Darrell Moore, president of the Moutrie-Colquitt County Development Authority.

They'll use the money for advertising and marketing, as well as the development of new websites.
