Albany -- It's not pleasant to look at, and may even pose a health risk. A Dougherty County Commissioner is worried about pigeon droppings.

Fungus can grow in the droppings and make you sick.

 Newly elected Commissioner Muarlene Edwards says if the commission wants to make beautification of the county a priority, that's a good place to start.  

"We constantly talk about litter coming in, but this is right here in our home, where I come in and see the Governmental building where we enforce laws, and we talk about them and we can't control the pigeons, but certainly we can clean this a little more regularly."  

At Monday's commission meeting, Edwards was appointed chairman of the public health committee and says one way to keep folks healthy is to keep Albany clean.
