Albany - A new senior center, which would merge all three Albany centers, is waiting at the Capitol for a final vote.

Congressman Sanford Bishop visited the Senior Center on Pine Avenue this morning. This center will get more than $57,000 from the federal government to buy new kitchen equipment.

If a new center is approved, the equipment will be transferred. Bishop says, "The kitchen facilities needed repair, so we were able to get money to do that, but that's a temporary fix. We'd like to see them get a new center that's modern and spacious and has a more pleasant environment."

Bishop says the budget will be voted on November 16th.

Senior Centers in Albany feed 300 or more people a day, which includes Meals on Wheels.

Albany has been feeling left out because 14 surrounding counties have new senior centers or are in the process of building them.
