Events Albany Publications

Purpose of the Events Albany Publications. The Events Albany E-Newsletter and Government Access Channel 16 are provided as a service of the City of Albany, Georgia to neighborhood groups, community organizations, and other not-for-profit groups providing services to citizens of Dougherty County.

Scope of Announcements.  Announcements that advocate political, religious, social or other causes are beyond the scope of all Events Albany publications. Events Albany is designed and made available to provide information to the public addressing community issues and events.

Editing of Announcements. The City reserves the right to edit announcements for purposes of grammar, spelling, understanding, and brevity, but will not intentionally change the substance of the announcement.

Municipality Neutral in All Announcements. Inclusion or exclusion of a matter from any Events Albany publication does not indicate any position taken by the City or County on any issue. The Events Albany E-Newsletter and Government Access Channel 16 are provided as a service to persons interested in involvement in community affairs.

Errors. The City will try to provide accurate information. However, persons asking to publicize events do so holding the City harmless from any error that may be made in the posting of an announcement. In no event will the City of Albany or Dougherty County be responsible for any damages arising from a misprint or other error. When errors are reported to the City, the best effort will be taken to correct the error within a reasonable time.
