City, utility will discuss problems

August 31, 2006

Albany -- Water, Gas and Light and the city of Albany will hold a joint meeting to discuss problems. An ordinance has been drafted that would, in effect, abolish the WG&L Board and give control of the utility to city commissioners.

Mayor Willie Adams complains about a lack of communication between the two organizations, even though in his role as mayor he is also chairman of the Water Gas and Light Commission.  

"I think more communication is needed between the two and it should be done in a professional manner," said WG&L General Manager Lem Edwards.  "I think we're dealing with adults, we're dealing with grown people and I think we can make this thing work to better serve the community."

They'll meet September 14th.
