Albany -  The Albany City Commission adopted a new ordinance Tuesday that not only makes city restrictions uniform with the state's, but allows for enforcement.

Mayor Dr. Willie Adams says, "We wanted to make sure that our rules were no more stringent than the state rules and that's why we backed up to be consistent with the state rules."

For a first violation, the offender will be warned, a second violation would result in a $200  fine and water cut off. Subsequent fines would be determined by tapping fees.

City Manager Alfred Lott says he plans to use code enforcement to make sure the violators are notified and cited.
