Albany - - Albany City leaders say they're moving forward with plans to get rid of eyesores. 

At a meeting of department heads to go over the city's strategic plan, City Enforcement Interim Director Thelma Watson said her department plans to demolish four dilapidated homes by the end of the year.

City Commissioner John Howard said he and Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard would be willing to volunteer to inspect properties for any violations if that would help the city crack down on vacant properties and illegal dumping.

Fire Chief James Carswell also told city leaders the city's 911 call center needs eight more operators to respond to the high number of calls it receives.

Only half of the city's department leaders were able to make presentations during the three hour meeting.

They plan to hold another one next month.
