ALBANY (WALB) - The city of Albany will soon start trial run of a reverse 911 service.
Commissioners approved the deal that will give the city 100,000 minutes to provide alerts to citizens about major crimes or traffic problems.
It will cost about $12,000 and functions like the county's code red system and will include land line and cell phone users who sign up for the service.
City leaders also approved a moratorium Tuesday night on Internet gaming cafes.
During the 120-day moratorium, those businesses cannot apply for business licenses
Last week, Governor Nathan Deal called on the GBI and local prosecutors around the state to crack down on the cafes which he says are illegal gambling parlors.
If the Federal Aviation Administration will play along. Albany leaders are ready to get to work on a new airport terminal.
City commissioners pre-approved accepting grant for the project once the FAA officially offers it.
Initial work is already finished. And the airport is ready to accept a bid for the main construction project.
The recent partial FAA shutdown put the paperwork in Washington behind.
If it's not finalized by the end of next month, the project could be delayed a year.
