Albany -- We may know more tomorrow about whether Albany city commissioners will take control of of Water Gas and Light.

City and WG&L leaders will meet tommorow to discuss recent tension between them.

WG&L is part of the city, but it's budget and day to day operations are controlled by a separate board. Recently the city drafted an oridinance that would disband that board and put city commissioners in direct control of the utility.

Tonight Mayor Willie Adams insisted that's not a takeover but admitted there is a lack of communication between the two boards and they need to work together better.

"What we're looking at is to see whether or not we can clear the atmosphere and create a better working relationship between the two entities," said Mayor Willie Adams.

The joint meeting is scheduled for Thursday morning at 9 a.m.
