ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The residents of one Albany public housing complex received special treatment from the Mayor Saturday. Mayor Willie Adams served the residents of Lane Landing during a picnic after they received the Mayor's Award of Excellence.

Adams created this award for public housing complexes where residents have shown pride and commitment in keeping their neighborhoods up. This carries even more weight at a time when more people need public housing.

"Our demand is as high as its ever been and our vacancies are as low as they have ever been. We are down to just 2 percent of our apartments vacant, and we consider that important as people need affordable housing," said Albany Housing Authority Diector, Dan McCarthy.

A panel not associated with the Albany Housing Authority selected Lane Landings because of its cleanliness and overall curb appeal.
