Cohilas, Jones take oaths of office

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dozens of people came to watch as Dougherty County Chairman Chris Cohilas and Commissioner Anthony Jones took their oaths of office Monday morning.

Both say they look forward to working with others on the commission and are ready to get started.

Jones says one of his first priorities will be to try to improve safety at the intersection of Nelms Road and Highway 19.

He says there have been a lot of accidents there.

"We certainly need to look in terms of trying to secure a traffic light for that area," said Jones. "Just this past weekend there was a bad wreck down there and we have had several wrecks down there."

He says he thinks the public will see some good things happen as they move through the new year.
