BRUCE CAPPS: T-SPLOST offers ‘vaguely-worded’ promises

Charles Capps

Albany Utilities is the city of Albany’s most important department. Yet the priorities that govern its operations are mostly unknown to the general public. Even watching the online versions of Utilities Board meetings offers little insight into its goals.

The current mayor campaigned on a platform that included making Albany Utilities a separate and distinct entity. The rationale behind this very popular promise is hard to understand. Regardless, the idea has not been pursued. It is possible that an independent utility would be more transparent, although that is doubtful. Regardless, Albany has a department that is in large part responsible for the future of Albany. Yet its goals, if they exist, are unknown.
