Recently, both the city of Albany and Dougherty County commissioners have stated the possibilities of raising property taxes to meet their proposed budgets. Raising taxes seems to be their comfort zone, but it is not the appropriate thought process for the taxpaying citizens.
I recently attended a county commission meeting to ask Dougherty County Chairman Jeff Sinyard to represent me and others in our county on bringing the city and county consolidation issue back to life. Chairman Sinyard did the right thing and promptly sent a letter to Mayor Dorothy Hubbard to consider taking action.
