ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany city leaders said that a plan to renovate an old bank building to house the utilities department will pay for itself in five years. 

On Tuesday night, city commissioners approved nearly $1.6 million for the work at the building on Pine Avenue.

Construction will start soon and should take about 4 months.

City leaders said they'll save $3,000 a month just in utility bills once Albany Utilities moves.

The city manager, and potentially other city offices, may also move to the new location.
