      Albany city manager gets a pay raise

      James Taylor and Mayor Dorothy Hubbard.

      Albany's city manager is getting a $15,000 dollar raise.

      Commissioners voted unanimously for the raise and ten more days of vacation time.

      With the raise, James Taylor will take home about $150,000 a year.

      Albany Mayor Dorothy Hubbard says, in any other city, it would be impossible to keep a city manager for that amount.

      She says Taylor has helped the county tremendously and of course they have to pay in order to keep him.
