Furloughs not included in Albany's proposed budget

By Cade Fowler - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany city leaders managed to balance the upcoming year's budget without furloughs or a tax increase.

At Tuesday night's city commission meeting, commissioners held the first of two public hearings on the proposed spending plan required before they can approve it.

At $104 million, it's a slight increase over the current budget, but the good news is it won't involve job cuts.

"Our budget does not include furloughs. Our recommendation is $104 million, and what we're looking to do is to maintain the level of service the city deserves," said Larry Johnson, Albany Management & Budget Officer.
