ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

City leaders say they're moving away from the concept of 'community policing' and no longer need the west Albany headquarters on Dawson Road.

They say the former fire station is a prime commercial location, and should attract a good price.

The city will also auction the former L'Jua's restaurant and property on Lockett Station Road and South Westover Boulevard after evaluating city properties.

"We win either way. From getting them off our roles, not having to do any maintenance. Things like that with them. And then the taxes start coming back to us as well," said Albany Asst. City Manager Wes Smith.

The four properties will be sold in an online auction on February 19th. Learn more about that auction HERE.
