Albany  -- Albany city commissioners continue to review the proposed charter for a consolidated Government.

Tuesday, they once again got hung up on what will happen to Water, Gas & Light if and when the governments combine.

"Water, Gas, & Light belongs to the city of Albany," said Mayor Pro Tem Tommy Postell.  "You can't separate that financial structure that they have, and funds that go through them and it relates to the city."

Commissioners are trying to determine if WG&L is an asset that the consolidated Government would share, or if it would need to remain a separate entity.
