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.
