Albany-- Albany is a signature away from having a new city manager. City commissioners agreed Thursday to hire Alfred Lott, the current public works director of Takoma Park, Maryland.

Lott can't sign the contract until he arrives in town Saturday. He'll make $110,000 a year and will start September 19th.

Until then, Water, Gas and Light Director Lem Edwards will continue to serve as interim city manager.

"Mr. Lott is a military man of 22 years," said Mayor Dr. Willie Adams. "He's had strategic planning at the Pentagon, gone to War College, flown helicopters and airplanes. So, I'm sure he's ready for a city of this size."

Commissioner Bo Dorough voted against the three year contract. Dorough said Lott is a good candidate, but would only agree to a two year contract.
