City audits looks good for Albany

November 18, 2004

Albany- When Albany City manager Janice Allen-Jackson steps down at the end of the year, she'll leave the city in strong financial shape.

An annual audit shows the city's finances in good condition, despite minimal growth each year. At the end of the fiscal year in June, the city's general fund had a net income of $2.6 million.

The police department was one area that had savings in personnel.

"They unfortunately, are not ever able to keep all of their positions filled," Jackson said. "One of the reasons for that is that you just can't find enough qualified officers."

She also said a raise for police officers should help the department maintain employees.
