ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The city is working with a community organization to help small businesses get started.

City commissioners gave the greenlight for Albany Community Together to manage the incubator space at the Arthur K. Williams Microbusiness Enterprise Center.

The city will pay them more than $140,000 a year to operate the building and revive some programs to help entrepreneurs.

"That'll be what we pay them to be the landlord,” said Tom Berry, Interim City Manager. They'll be there during working hours to take care of all the needs of that building."

The management is a partnership between Albany Community Together and the Community Economic Development. Albany Community Together will take over as landlord in the next few days.
