Albany - After a surprise vote Monday night, Albany City Manager Janice Allen Jackson will keep her job, at least for now. "My feeling are mixed. Obviously, it was a relief to get a unanimous vote," said Janice Allen Jackson, City Manager.

After a 10-hour closed door meeting, city commissioners agreed to renew Jackson's contract until the end of the year. Even though Monday afternoon, the Mayor told Jackson's supporters and the media no decision would be made until Tuesday.

Commissioner Henry Mathis was Jackson's most outspoken critic. But at about 7:00PM, he made the motion to renew her contract.

Jackson spent the day answering a list of 20 questions commissioners gave her last week. "The questions covered any number of things. Some of them were related to financial issues, others to flood recovery and infrastructure. They really covered the whole gamut," said Jackson.

Jackson still has questions about the terms of the contract. The City Manager is usually appointed to a two year term.
