Albany- Improving police protection and emergency communication, those are the top priorities for the city of Albany this year.

Tuesday, Commissioners finalized their top five list of projects they hope their Washington lobbyist can get federal money for. They want new laptops in patrol cars and better communication between police and EMS. Number three on the list is a mapping system to count the number of houses and locations of city infrastructure. Number four, rehabilitate the main sewage line north of the city to downtown. After a lot of discussion, commissioners decided to put a new airport taxiway in the top five.

"In this case maybe we need to look at this situation and move the airport taxiway up since we've already concluded through a logical problem solving process that the airport is one of our top priorities for the next year," said Alfred Lott, Albany City Manager.

The airport project bumped a Downtown Streetscapes project to repair sidewalks off the list, but commissioners will submit it as an alternate.
