Workers no longer have to reside in Albany County to get a position with the county.

The Albany County Legislature unanimously approved a resolution to loosen residency requirements for new job applicants.

Personnel Committee member Mark Grimm of Guilderland says county lawmakers will revisit the need for a residency requirement in two years.

The measure is expected to pass in the full legislature on August 8.
