Albany --  Albany's downtown manager may take on yet another roll in the revitalization project.   Don Buie is already overlooking to organizations working to bring a turn around to Downtown Albany.  

Buie has been recommended to fill a vacancy on the Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful Board. William Walton has served on the board for over 14 years.

He has had to step down from that position because of recent changes with his job responsibilities as an Ichauway administrator.  

"Well certainly it's not a position that I lobbied for, but it fits well with what I am already trying to do. What Judy Bowles and her board does is critical to the revitalization to not just to downtown Albany, but the entire city," Buie said.  

Buie is already the CEO of ADICA as well as the Downtown Manager for the city of Albany.

The Dougherty County Commission will vote on his recommendation in their meeting next week.
