Albany - The end of the year also marks the end of City Manager Janice Allen Jackson's tenure with the city of Albany. Thursday, Jackson filled out her exit interview forms, and workers finished packing up her things in the office.

Jackson started working with the city 12 years ago as assistant city manager and became city manager in 1996.

Jackson's last year was tainted with turmoil. First, city commissioners were hesitant to renew her contract and then finally renewed it only until the end of this year. Jackson resigned effective December 31st the last day of that contract. But, Jackson say she has no bitter feelings.

"None at all," said Janice Allen Jackson. "We've been so productive, and we have so many things to focus on that we've gotten done. So, I have no bad feelings at all."

Jackson plans to spend time with her two children, but says her career in city government is likely not over.

The City is holding a going away party for Jackson on January 11. It's open to the public, and will be held at the Civic Center at 4:00 PM.
