Josh Walton, area director for the Macon office of the UGA Small Business Development Center, will be at Perry City Hall on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 5-6 p.m. for a small business development open house.

Walton will be available to discuss programs offered through the SBDC office and other resources that can help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. The open house will be an informal event where business owners can drop by and speak one-on-one with him.
