ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Key Albany stakeholders come together to find out what's going on around town. City manager Al Lott and county administrator Richard Crowdis spoke at the lunch with leaders event Wednesday.

They both talked about projects currently underway in the community. Lott highlighted the business first initiative, an informational 311 system and plans for downtown development. Crowdis touted the partnership with the Marine Corps logistics base converting landfill gas to energy.

Chamber President Catherine Glover says the meetings are important to keep key stakeholders informed on what's going on in Albany.  She said, "This is set up to be a very small, intimate setting. We invite our legislative committee and some key stakeholders in our committee to come in and address and educate our public."

Wednesday's meeting was the second in the Lunch with leaders series.
