SAVANNAH, GA (WALB) – It could be a while before Albany City Manager Al Lott finds out if he'll be offered the city manager job in Savannah.

Two weeks ago, Lott was named one of two finalists for the job. Thursday, the Savannah City Council could have officially offered the job to Lott or interim City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney, but they didn't. In a contentious meeting, they couldn't agree on what to do.

Some council members question Small-Toney's qualifications. Others were angry they didn't learn Lott was being sued by a former Albany city worker who now works for Savannah until he was already a finalist. 

The mayor wanted to call off the search altogether for a year, but that was voted down. They'll likely discuss the issue again in two weeks.  Lott announced last year he would leave Albany when his contract ends in June.
