The Water, Gas & Light Commission is a municipally-owned and operated utility system furnishing water, gas, and electricity to our broad–based customers. The City of Albany, Georgia Water Works was established in 1892, followed by the Albany Electric Plant, founded in 1900. The Water, Gas and Light Commission was established by City Charter in 1912 with the Mayor serving as ex-officio chairman and four other members to be appointed by the City Commission to serve terms of two years. Each appointed member can serve no more than three consecutive two-year terms. The commission is vested with the exclusive authority to establish water, gas and electric rates and to make and enforce rules for the collection of the same.
Board of Commission meetings are normally scheduled for the last Thursday of each month at 8:30 am in the third floor conference room at our 207 Pine Avenue, Albany, Georgia location. Any alteration of this schedule will be posted for public view at the 207 Pine Avenue location.
