ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A proposal to consolidate Albany and Dougherty County was read before the senate Friday and now heads to the House.  

The Albany delegation must approve it.  Senate Bill 538 calls for a full time mayor or CEO if Albany and Dougherty County consolidate. 

If it's approved by the legislature and signed by the governor, a referendum would be held in Albany and Dougherty County and voters would decide whether to consolidate the two governments.
