ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany City Commission hired a code attorney to do a little housekeeping and clean up the city's book of ordinances.

Municipal Code looked at the city's charter and ordinances. They came up with a new document to do away with laws that have been amended or just don't apply anymore. That gives the city a more organized list of ordinances that apply even if consolidation happens in the future. 

"Our codes are 24 years old, we simply have to update them and if by chance some consolidation occurs then we'll have updated codes to merge with the county instead of having to do any adjustments to any mergers that may occur or not," said Albany City Manager Al Lott.

Commissioners were given a second draft of the codes Tuesdsay. They'll take several work sessions to check over the draft before voting whether to accept it.

The city codes were last updated in 1985.
