Albany- Thursday night was the last chance for you to give your opinion on consolidating Albany and Dougherty County governments and services.

The turnout was low again at the final hearing at Deerfield-Windsor. Some people are ready for the debate to end and ready for the issue to go to the voters.

"I think it needs to go that far, as to let the people of Dougherty County and the city of Albany have the say so on whether or not they want to merge these two governments and not just let it end with the vote of one or both of the commissions," said Charles Gillespie, an Albany resident.

The consolidation study committee will make a recommendation to the city and county commissions. If they vote for consolidation, the issue would go to the general assembly, then to the voters on a referendum.
