LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County leaders installed new public bathrooms on Jordan Road. 

County leaders spent $40,000 on handicap-accessible bathrooms for the 4-H Shotgun Team and Airmasters Model Airplane Club (AMAC).

Both organizations used the land to practice shooting and fly model planes. 

Before, they would use outhouses and even the woods since the nearest restroom was down the road. 

Every year, 4-H hosts a big invitational and AMAC showcases planes on the grounds, those events attract a couple hundred residents.

"They were real nice to us. When they gave us this field here. It wasn't in this shape. We did the best we can with it. And then Lee County came out and helped us level it off and get it ready," said AMAC Treasurer Samuel Williams.  

"Usually you can't really find a place where you can shoot a shotgun if you're like really into. But if you know that you can have a place to shoot a shotgun and use the bathroom. I think you have like the perfect spot," said 4-H Shotgun Team Member Carley Holland. 

Those interested in joining the 4-H Shotgun Team can register between now and December.

AMAC members welcome any residents interested in learning to fly model to come out on Saturdays and Sundays.
