POSTAGE PAID HOGANSVtLLE, GA PERMIT NO. 35 t Bryan Geter Hogansville City Manager Aldrich this week vowed 'll get the town back in the black Nith ven if it's only by one dollar. Aldrich said he and the present !uncil inherited the city's shaky aancial situation. Vows To Get City Back into the Black After the fiscal 2000 audit for the City, Randall Bivings of Wilcox & Bivings said in an Aug. 31 let- ter, "This is a very serious con- cern. If this trend continues, the city is risking the future possibil- ity of becoming insolvent." Aldrich said heand the city offi- cials are trying to slow the finan- cial drain. Aldrich said before he came to Hogansville in June 1998, the city lost $631,000. He said in 1999 the loss was $144,000 and last year it dropped to $129,000. "We are trim- ming it (losses) down each year. It is going to take time," he said. "I am a fighter," Aldrich said. "I knew it was a bad situation when I came, but I like a challenge and I am determined to get the city into the black. If it is only one dol- lar, I'll be happy." It is going to take a while but the city is headed in the right direc- tion, he reiterated. Aldrich said the city has cut costs where it could and "took care of the basics and infrastructures." He said the $800,000 bond issue is the biggest problem. "We are up-to-date with all pay- ments," he added. "I inherited the problem, but I am trying to work out of it but it won't happen overnight. It took a while to get into this and it will take awhile to get out." Councilman Ezra Whitmore praised Aldrich.
