ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Commissioners bands together with city leaders in support of keeping the Albany Cooper Tire plant open.  

Following the city's lead, county commissioners passed a resolution Monday morning  supporting Cooper. Cooper has announced it plans to close one of its four plants.

In addition to the resolution, community leaders have met with Cooper executives and have more meetings planned in order to make their case and keep the Albany plant open.  

"In meeting with them, we got a very distinct dialogue that outlined some of the strengths and weaknesses of our plant, that outlined some of the needs that they had to have to be more profitable, to have more productivity, to allow them to be in a state or community that gave them the best chance for growth," says County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard. 

Local and state leaders will travel to Cooper headquarters in Findlay, Ohio on Wednesday.

They will make a presentation to Cooper executives on Thursday, including that joint resolution.
