Albany - The hunt is on for unnecessary duplication between Albany and Dougherty County services that may be costing taxpayers money. Delaper and Associates, the consultant hired by the governmental consolidation committee, is interviewing department heads and scrutinizing the public works, public safety, human resources, and finance departments.

They hope to give the consolidation committee their findings in about 2 months. "We're looking at service areas from each department that are overlapping and may be duplicating each other," said Del Delaper, Consultant. "And, we're look at economics of scale that is the total number of man hours, man power, and cost."

The consultants will soon meet with city and county commissioners to hear their opinions about unifying services and governments.
