Albany - Dougherty County Commissioners are one step closer to purchasing Radium Springs Country Club. On Thursday, the commission voted to accept a grant of more than $721,000 from the Georgia Land Conservation Trust Fund. That money will purchase Radium Springs Country Club which will be used for greenspace for the county.

Commissioner Charles Lingle said, "As a greenspace to save for the community for years to come. It will serve as a buffer along the River. Hopefully in the future with some plans of a walking rail or something like that for the neighborhoods to enjoy. We'll just have to wait and see how that can develop."

The county paid for three other nearby parcels with $50,000.
