Albany - If you continue to ignore water restrictions set by the state of Georgia, you may soon have to pay for it. The Albany City Commission will vote Tuesday night on fines for violators.

Statewide water restrictions are in place, but apparently a lot of people in Albany are breaking the rules. Water, Gas and Light says people are constantly reporting their neighbors, but violators are only getting warnings.  Lorie Farkas says, "They have to be in place, because you can't have the restrictions without the punishment. It's like having a rule with no teeth, people don't abide by them."

The commission is expected to adopt fines for violators. A reminder: under the statewide restrictions, Odd numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Even numbered addresses can water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Statewide restrictions prohibit watering between 10 am and 4 pm.
