Albany - The Chairman of the Dougherty County Commission says he's glad consolidation talks are still taking place. Jeff Sinyard says the city commission took the right position yesterday, by agreeing to dissect the proposed charter for a consolidated government and discussing it with each other.

The county commission voted not to move it forward, but that doesn't mean they can't still discuss it, and Sinyard hopes they will.  He says, "I'm happy the city is still pursuing it. I don't think the consolidation process is dead. I think that folks should still have an opportunity at some point to vote on it."

The charter can be placed back on the county's agenda, if one of the commissioners who voted against it, wishes to bring it back up.
