Albany city leaders have unanimously approved more than $89,000 to develop more low-moderate income housing.
Tuesday, the Home Investment Partnership Program funds carried over from 2013 was allocated to help R&M Market Place acquire and renovate two single family homes.
Shelena Hawkins, the Interim Director of the Community and Economic Development Council, said developing the two properties at 2407 Doncaster and 413 Corn Avenue is essential for the city.
Commissioners also unanimously approved $351,250 for a storage facility for the Albany Fire Department.
Fire Chief James Carswell said the department currently houses equipment in the city's 11 stations, which spread over 324 miles throughout the city and county.
He said a facility will centralize equipment, and make it easier for emergency staff to access it quickly as needed.
