ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany's mayor Dorothy Hubbard said ground should be broken on the much anticipated microbrewery project "any day".

She told this to a sold-out room of community leaders at the Albany Chamber's annual "State of the Community".

Mayor Hubbard said the city has done what they've needed to do to seal the deal.

"All of the final papers that the city has to sign, I think, have been signed. We are waiting for them to notify us when the groundbreaking is going to be, and we are just excited about it too. We just can't wait and certainly we know once the ground is broken, within the next 12 to 18 months we should have us a microbrewery," said Hubbard.

The microbrewery, which is set to be built at the Art Park sight on Pine Avenue, near the Flint River, is expected to be a big draw for people to visit downtown, and attract other businesses.

Company's leaders confirmed the mayor's comments.

While they haven't set the date, they expect the groundbreaking will be very soon.
