DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is expanding in Dougherty County.

County commissioners said they're setting up a staging lot down the road from the airport where they will store 400 to 700 cars and hire 8 to 10 new employees.

Commissioner Gloria Gaines said that the expansion is great for economic development in that part of the county. 

"I think that bodes well for the prospect for economic development in that corridor and I look forward to working with the EDC and trying to develop a plan for that corridor going forward," explained Gaines.

Gaines said 91, which is a heavily used route to travel to Florida, has a lot of potential.
