Then, Councilman Charlie Frank Martin made a second to Jackson's motion, but it was not allowed either. St. Clair told Martin that he rejected the motion. "When calling names, we need to handle this in execu- tive session," St. Clair stated. Martin said, "We already have.", JACKSON said he heard that Troup County is going to raise on property taxes over two mills next year. Aldrich Jackson regular street tires on it when it needed larger tires for the load it will carry. THE TIRES that came off the truck will be used on other lighter trucks, the mayor said, "And that is not waste- ful spending, Mr. Jackson." Jackson also stated that it was wasteful spending when the city sent five employees to school and after finishing the course, a five percent raise was given to each one. "I don't think we need to give raises for peo- ple to do their jobs," Jackson Jackson said the city has stated. had retreats and work ses- St Clair called for a sions trying to get the city in motion and second to close ..... ..... :- ..... i,mee after a span "By no means can I see Hogansville people paying nearly 21 mills in taxes," he said. "We have got to get a hold on spending and we have got to check inventory and our workforce." "Quite frankly," Jackson added, "We need new leader- ship, David." Then, he said to Aldrich, "David, I don't think you can handle it." St Clair asked Jackson how was the city being waste- ful. Jackson said, "We ['ought a new truck and then pur- chased four new tires for it." St. Clair said the truck had of time, the needed three votes finally came. AFTER the meeting, Jackson said he thought the city's problem is with man- agement. Wde need to lighten up on spending and follow the budget," he stated. "My con- cerns is for the people of Hogansville." Aldrich was put on a six month probation period and the time is supposed to expire this month, he added. Jackson said the mayor didn't have the authority to dismiss those motions during the regular meeting. Woman Faces DUI Charges Afte Car Runs into Ditch i By BRYAN GETER The Hogansville Police arrested a HogansviUe woman last Thursday and charged her with DUI. Candace Marie Cole, 27, of 2358 Mobley Bridge Road was arrested at approxi- mately 3 a.m. on E. Main Street near Russell Road after her vehicle had run off the road into a'ditch. Cole told police she was trying to turn around but misseti the drive way. Officer Edward Lee said he noticed that Cole was unsteady on her feet and also had a slur in her speech as well as being confused and kept repeating herself. In other police news, Barry Chapman of 105 Brazil Street told police that some- one(s) entered his yard and took his green 3.5 HP- 22 inch cut Murray lawnmower. The matter remains under inves- See POLICE, Page 2A Not everyone in Hogansville is for the proj- ect. Mildred Burdette voiced her opinion against the proj- ect stating that the park is too small to attractively accom- modate a building of any type. "The area will look clut- tered and cramped," she said. "The park should be kept open, airy and inviting if it is to be the centerpiece of the town." Burdette added that a building in the park could oray serve a minimum useful purpose. ,'Anything built on ,city property should provide a substantial benefit for a large portion of the citizen group," she added The third reason Burdette gave in opposition to the gazebo being built was the structure as planned will be expensive to maintain. "To avoid its becoming an eye- sore," she stated, "it will have to be kept cleaned and paint- ed. It will need to be protect- ed from vandalism." Burdette stated that the city already has maintenance problems with gas leaks, water system problems, worn out streets and right of way problems. The final point Burdette gave is that pavilion will detract from the Veterans Memorial as the focal point of the park. Burdette said the beauty of the memorial in its stark simplicity reminds us of the See GAZEBO, 2A By Frances Rolnson FUN START TO SPRING- Mr. and Mrs. Doug Duck honored their son Joshua Duck for his 9th birthday.
