Albany -- City commissioners and department heads continue working to balance the upcoming year's budget.

The City manager's office is actually over budget right now because of new extra expenses from the addition of the Downtown Manager.

The engineering department is within its budget but wants more money from the general fund to pay inspectors currently funded with SPLOST money.

"Three or four years done the road our numbers could be taxed because we could lose money from SPLOST, and this is to head it off early and prevent it from happening," said Interim Director, Rod Hutchinson.

The City's Human Resources department is under budget by a half million dollars. They saved money by streamlining the hiring process.
