Albany - There were some heated moments at Tuesday's city commission meeting. Specifically when Commissioner Morris Gurr addressed Chief Younger about his presence in the community and his lack of ability to communicate with the public.

Here's part of what Gurr said:

"The public perception Chief Younger is that you pass the buck. The public perception is that you're an isolationist and that you hunker down in your office. The public perception is that you're not interested in engaging the public. You walking away from a press conference and not answering questions."

"You're the face of public safety in this city, you are and yet you won't engage the public. You won't engage questions that come your way. I've defended you to neighborhood watch groups over the last 17 months. I've defended you to county officials. I have defended you to county law enforcement agencies."

"I'm at the point where my trust and confidence is at a pretty low level, and I don't know if I can continue doing that. And It comes to me from a lack of communication on your part."
