BAXLEY, Ga. -

Federal officials say they plan to close the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Georgia Rural Development Office in Baxley.

WTOC-TV reports that the office is scheduled to be closed by Dec. 7.

U.S.D.A. officials say the office has served the agency's southeast region of Georgia for more than 30 years. They say offices in Statesboro, Blackshear and Douglas will remain open.

Baxley is about 90 miles southwest of Savannah.
