Albany/Dougherty County one step closer to consolidation

Posted: Updated:

Albany - Albany City Commissioners tentatively voted this morning to send a consolidated charter to the Georgia General Assembly.

The city and county have spent months crafting a charter that would create guidelines for a consolidated government.

Their only sticking point now is whether to create a full-time C.E.O. position and determine a salary.

The vote by commissioners this morning was just a committee vote, and it must be approved by the whole commission before it's official.
