ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Soon, Albany Utilities will have a new home with new furnishings and equipment.
Albany Utilities will be moving from its current building at 207 Pine Avenue over to the old Synvous SB&T Bank at 401 Pine Avenue.
Albany City Manager Sharon Subadan said the project is a local one with city leaders working with a local contractor and vendor.
The overall cost is of the transition is expected to be around $3.3 million dollars.
In that, officials plan to spend around $406,000 on new furnishings, lighting fixtures, and equipment.
"You know, it's kind of one of those things where it's a one-time expenditure, but you spend it once and then you have that furniture for around 20 years," Subadan said.
The 207 Pine building will be made available to downtown redevelopment.
City leaders hope that the building will become a residential space, like the upcoming Flats at 249.
