Commissioners tweak personal care home ordinance

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany city commissioners are still tweaking a personal care home ordinance that has caused some controversy.

The city has not allowed any new personal care homes to open since September, as commissioners work on new regulations for the businesses.

Tuesday, they discussed proposed changes to the current ordinance that has been in place for 20 years.

Mayor Dorothy Hubbard says they're making sure to follow all state rules and regulations in addition to including input from residents.

"We don't think that the staff included everything that the citizens wanted so they're going to go back now and look at that and determine what should and should not be included," said Hubbard.

Commissioners have received requests to allow some new personal care homes to open since they put the moratorium in place, but they have denied those requests.
