Albany-- Dougherty County voters will have to wait on any new decisions for proposed redistricting. The Albany-Dougherty County Charter Commission met today to look at three new proposals for County Commission districts.

Commissioners moved to bring in some outside help to look at legal issues surrounding the proposed redistricting. Commissioners say dealing with the legal issues are a critical first step before arriving at a decision.

"Throughout this process we have to stand muster as far as the Justice Department is concerned. Were still operating under the voting rights act. This would be a way for us to dot all of our I's and cross all of our T's," says County Commissioner Art Searles

The 2004 district lines for Dougherty County commissioners and school board members were decided by Judge Louis Sands after an Albany man sued the County for using a map that under represented the black population.
