WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

Dollar General said it is interested in adding a new store on Highway 520 in Sylvester but have not yet committed.

Next week, the Worth County Board of Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing to discuss possible rezoning of where the store could be located.

The area in question is on the corner of Woodcrest Road and Highway 82.

"Wonder why they would want to populate stores so closely together and create the traffic jams and the problems in a neighborhood like this," said Worth County resident Anne Goodburn.  

The public hearing will be held at the courthouse at 7 p.m. on September 15th.

A Dollar General spokesperson said they anticipate a final decision on the store to be made early spring of 2017.
