City vote next step to numerous job openings in Albany

Thrush Aicraft Inc. in Albany might open up hundreds of jobs thanks to a Monday vote.

The long term finance team agreed to give the company $200,000 for business expansion. The expansion can open up 100 jobs or more just in the first year of a three year plan.

The agreement is under the Albany Job Investment Fund, something officials hope other companies take advantage of.

"We are hoping that many people, people from all over the state, looks at this and says if you create 50, 100, 500 jobs, 1,000 jobs," said county commissioner B.J. Fletcher. "We are going to work with you, we are going to try to give you a deal you can't refuse."

In order for the proposal to go into its next phase, the city commission will have to vote on it. The vote is set for July 22nd.
