ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany city commissioners are still considering what action to take against a city employee who took a gun to work.

A co-worker of City Attorney Nathan Davis, noticed the gun in Davis's desk. Davis admitted to keeping a gun and a knife in his desk for more than a year.

The city has an administrative policy that prohibits weapons in city offices.

 The commission met yesterday in executive session to discuss a course of action but did not come to an agreement.

"How any one employee is treated versus another in an incident obviously affects us as a municipality and the way we work," said Assistant City Manager Wes Smith. "But Mr. Davis is a unique situation, as he's a direct employee or appointee of the commission. So the commission is ultimately responsible for what actions are or are not taken."

The city is currently working on a new personnel management system policy that clarifies exactly who can carry a gun in a government building. Davis declined an interview.
