Development authority backs P&G "green" facility

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany-Dougherty Payroll Development Authority is backing a plan to help move along a Procter and Gamble bio-plant project.    

Monday morning chairman of the authority agreed on sending a support letter to the Georgia Public Service Commission before their meeting Thursday.     

P&G wants to sublease a portion of acreage to the Albany Green Energy to build a steam and energy facility.     

The meeting will decide if an extension will be given for the Commercial Operation Date and for collateral deposits, that leaders say is crucial to move the project forward.  

"We're behind it and we've been strongly behind it from the beginning. We want to make sure that every partner that's involved in this knows how this community feels about our jobs and our employers," said County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard.     

The $200 million project will take two to three years of construction to complete.  The plant is expected to bring 200 construction jobs initially and about 25 full-time jobs.
