DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County's leaders hired a consulting firm on Thursday to help identify grant money and other resources that might be available to pay for things that FEMA money won't.

The commission's chairman said that bringing on these disaster recovery experts is an "investment in the community's long-term recovery."    

"It's important to hire good people to do the right job in order to provide relief to citizens during a disaster. A lot of people are hurting right now and we need to make sure that we are maximizing the benefit and help to everyone," said Dougherty County Commission Chairman Chris Cohilas.
