Henry County commissioners approved funding for the operation of local Boys & Girls Clubs.

A memorandum of understanding with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Georgia was approved unanimously by the Henry County Board of Commissioners at its Oct. 15 regular meeting.

The county will pay $150,000 per year according to the agreement, and officials said the payment for the 2020 fiscal year is in the Henry County Parks and Recreation Department budget. The MOU is part of an arrangement that includes the city of McDonough and the Henry County School system, under which the BGCCG will operate two club locations within McDonough using existing school facilities.

The school board is expected to consider possible host sites at a November meeting.
