Albany - The group writing a proposed new charter for a consolidated Albany-Dougherty County wants a woman to join them. Critics complained when the city and county failed to pick any women to serve on the new charter commission. Thursday, the 8 person group decided to ask city and county commissioners to allow them to appoint another member.

The commission will hire a consulting firm to help write the charter. They'll also figure out how much unifying city and county services and government will cost.

A study commission found consolidation eventually could save as much as 2-million dollars a year.
