"Dray Line" changes prompting complaints

April 15, 2003

Albany-- Closing the "Dray Line" in downtown Albany has prompted complaints.

Commissioner David Williams says he's received more than 30 phone calls from people complaining about the changes at the "Dray Line." The "Dray Line" is a name given to the corner of Roosevelt and Washington streets where day laborers wait for work. Now, they'll only be allowed to stand around down there between 7 a.m. and noon.

Commissioner David Williams says, "We feel that the area they are customarily have been in is not suitable any longer the city should relocate them into an area."

David Williams says it's misleading to think the day workers are all homeless.
