Albany- Commissioner Henry Mathis made a motion to terminate the services of Capital Principle. That firm is working on the city's 5-year strategic plan and helping create a new budget.

Four commissioners agreed the group overstepped its bounds when it contacted the firm working on the city manager search. Still, only Mathis and Commissioner Tommie Postell voted to give Capital Principle the boot.

"They do not contact the people that we've hired to find a city manager in a timely manner. the city manager Mr. Edwards stated that it had slowed the process down. Now whether it's right or wrong he stated it, I verified it and that's why I made the recommendation," says Mathis.

Mathis also says the firm has not been reliable. Its final budget report was supposed to be delivered last week, but it's not expected to be finished until June.
