Dougherty County -- Dougherty County will soon have a brand new Public Works facility.

The Dougherty County Commission approved building onto the Public Works facility on Habersham Drive. The new building will also be extended out through the back of the property.

The work will be built by Department of Corrections inmates. This will save the county thousands of dollars in contractor fees and labor costs.

"This will put employees, supervisors of Public works in a very nice environment. They will be in a modern facility where they can do their work more efficiently," said Dougherty County Administrator, Richard Crowdis.

Construction for this SPLOST V project starts in early fall.

Department of corrections inmates also help build the Department of Motor Vehicles facility on Newton Road.
