Albany - Starting next year, Water, Gas and Light will receive millions of dollars in credits from the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia. Now, city and WG&L commissioners are discussing whether to use that money to give breaks to customers.

Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard is one of the commissioners charged with making a recommendation to the entire commission about how the money should be managed. She wants it to help customers. She also believes it could be used as incentives to attract industries to Albany.

"What kind of foundation would that lay for jobs and for economic development for the future of our city, for our children and our grandchildren," asked Hubbard.  "That's one of the things I'm really pushing for."

Water, Gas and Light should receive close to $9 Million next year in credits from MEAG.
