Albany City Commissioners approve roof repairs on the old Water, Gas and Light building

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many in Albany have been wondering what the city is going to do with the old Water, Gas and Light Building on Pine Avenue.

City commissioners have approved around a $133,000 project to repair roof damage sustained from Hurricane Michael.

The goal is to repair and transform the building into something that can be used.

And Albany residents said they can’t wait to see something go into the large downtown structure.

“I was looking at them fixing it up and I was saying to myself it probably would be a nice building if they would have apartment, or you know different ways to fix it up, like put senior peoples or stuff like that there that want a place to live in. That would be real nice, real nice for Albany,” said Curtis Kelly.

The project will be paid for through the city’s insurance.
