ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A group of Albany citizens wants to create positive change in the Good Life City, and they say they have a plan to do that.

A couple dozen people joined in a town hall Thursday night to give feedback on how they believe Albany can move forward as a city.

Pastors Yaz Johnson and Rance Pettibone invited taxpayers to speak their minds.

Topics included police, education, job creation for young people, and beautification.

The pastors said they want to focus on the south and east sides of Albany.

The people at the town hall put a major focus on holding city leaders and themselves accountable.

"We decided to look within ourselves and see if we can't put something together, and put it on paper, and take it and hand it to the commissioners," said Pettibone.

"Address the city officials and let them know what we as citizens want from Albany, Georgia," said Johnson.

The organizers plan to host multiple town hall meetings on improving Albany in the near future.

The pastors said they want to host the next meeting around 30 days from now.
