City Commissioners went to Atlanta to sit in on seminars and speak with legislators.
Issues mentioned included a bill regarding metal thefts that would require scrap metal stores to check ID's and take tag numbers before rewarding cash for any metal.
Mayor Dorothy Hubbard says she is also planning a trip to Washington D.C. to talk with delegation about several issues, including keeping the Albany Marine Corps Band.
"It's known as the Albany Marine Corps Band, which means that gives us publicity and it's a positive impact for our city when they go and play all over the country," says Mayor Hubbard.
She plans on going next month with members of the Chamber of Commerce.
