WG&L assets to benefit urban area

The consolidated charter will read that the assets from WG&L will benefit the urban area

The Dougherty County Commission agreed with the City about where Water, Gas and Light assets will go in the consolidated charter.

The Commission took a consensus today and it was four to three that the 90 million dollars in assets should go to benefit the urban area in the event the City and County are consolidated. However, commissioner Jack Stone thinks this is a decision best left to the consolidated government.

Even if they approve the charter and it moves up to the General Assembly for approval, the state can still change any decisions made by the City or the County.
