Albany -- City leaders honored a unique bank and its customers today in downtown Albany. Capital City Bank and Trust is Albany's only black-owned bank.

City manager Alfred Lott,  Albany Police Chief James Younger and other city and county leaders helped celebrate the bank's sixth anniversary in Albany.

The President and founder thanked customers for their business and promised to continue to serve the city of Albany by providing more access to housing.

" We know that we do have competitive rates, but I think we need to get involved on the development side of affordable housing," said George Andrews. "Affordable housing is something that is not just needed in Albany, but really all over the country."

Customers got free food and gifts today at the Oglethorpe Boulevard location. Capitol City bank is based in Atlanta.
