Albany-- Dougherty County will help decide what makes history in Albany. County leaders agreed to changes to the Historic Preservation Committee.

Previously, members of that group had the final say-so on whether to declare a building a historical site. Now a new committee made up of people appointed by the City and County Commissions will have the final say.

They hope the changes will allow more voices to be heard in the process.

"Well, I hope it enhances what we already have, and get people who have not been involved to become more so and those of us who have to continue to be," said District 3 County Commissioner, Maurleen Edwards.

Eight members will make up this committee, four from the city and four from the county. Albany City Commissioners initiated the change to help fight blight in the area.
