Albany- The Fate of the job of Albany city Manager Janice Allen Jackson could be determined as early as Friday.

A special meeting of the Albany City Commission called for Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Commissioner Henry Mathis called the meeting. But all this is happening while Mayor Willie Adams, who supports Jackson, is out of town. Thursday, some Albany citizens gathered at the government center to show their support for the city manager.

They say that, with a new mayor, this is not a good time to get a new city manager.

"For Henry Mathis to call this meeting is not the desire of Mayor Adams," said supporter Catherine Shepherd.

"We feel like this is a critical time, Janice Allen has been around. She knows the city of Albany. She can provide that support," said Theodus Drake, another supporter.

The stated purpose of tomorrow's meeting is to discuss personnel matters while not being specific about which personnel.

Tuesday the commission refused to reappoint Jackson to the city manager's job which she has held since 1996. Some commissioners including Henry Mathis say it's time for a change in the top administrator's job at Albany City Hall.
