SYLVESTER, Ga. (AP) - Commissioners of a south Georgia county are looking to take out a loan to cover the county's payroll at the end of the week.

WALB-TV reports Worth County commissioners voted Tuesday to find a bank willing to lend it $350,000 they can use to pay county employees with.

The station reports the county, which sits between Albany and Tifton, took out a $750,000 loan earlier this month and has about $40,000 available to pay employees with.

County officials say they're expecting insurance bonds to provide them with about $600,000 in the next few weeks.

The station reports two county commissioners weren't present for the vote, and the county attorney recently resigned.

Following the vote, the commission went into an executive session to discuss personnel matters.
