Albany- Albany Water Gas and Light has not approved a new health insurance plan that would more than double health insurance premiums for retirees under the age of 65.

The city and county did approve the proposed plan, which jacks those premiums from $300.00 to $700.00 dollars a month.

The city manager sent a letter saying Water Gas and Light approved it as well, but General Manager, Lem Edwards says not so. "They are the people who built water gas and light, and they are the people who built the city of Albany and he's trying desperately to take care of them," claims Water Gas and Light spokesperson Lorie Farkas.

A new health insurance plan doesn't have to be agreed on until January.
