During the ensuing struggle, Bagley grabbed his own gun from behind the count- er and fired twice missing the suspects. The three then fled the store.

The contract calls for the county to provide a complete work detail crew to include a cor- rectional officer and six to eight inmates. The contract becomes effec- tive on July 1, 2000 and can be renewed annually. ALSO APPROVED was the city's Comprehensive Plan Schedule. The plan was discussed a length at a public hearing prior to the council meeting. Aldrich told the council the felt the plan was a "pretty good one" and the state would be responsible for the expenses of the plan. Aldrich said the plan would expire in ten years, unless changes be cne necessary. Rural Community Development members are expected to work with the city to develop and complete the plan. The city's planning committee expects to meet monthly to also discuss the plan. Mildred Burdette, a citizen of Hogansville, suggested all coun- cil members and planning com- mittee members be given an updated comprehensive plan. THE COUNCIL approved three proclamations during the meeting. "Safe Kids observed in 13. Del of "Safe Kids of the program is first anniversary and i Troup County. A Century was approved.

St. Clair said he felt the ordi- nance will probably be dis- cussed again at the next meet- ing of council If the council gives the same 4-1 vote, the Mayor would not be able to veto the ordinance a second time. If the council adopts the ordinance by a 3-2 vote, the Mayor could once again veto it. If it ends in a 3-2 vote, the council would probably have to return to the drawing board and redraft the ordinance before it would be adopted. Opposition has arisen from landowners who are concerned about the ordinance in its pres- ent form. Dr. Hugh S. Thompson of Fayetteville told the Hogansville Home News this week he was opposed to any restriction and he said he will take any action necessary to "remedy this situation." "I consider your proposed restrictions to my property, in addition to those which cur- rently exist, to be a taking of my property without compen- sation," Thompson wrote in a letter to the council. In a letter to'the mayor, coun- cil and city manager, John M. Arnold of Hogansville, said the proposed buffers and restric- tions around the Hogansville reservoir and the Blue Line creeks within the watershed render approximately 224 acres useless and of little or no value. Therefore such restrictions would be a taking of property without condemnation. Arnold said it is his opinion, ff ally pay for the taking, a much effort will be made of development, course, voir. He asked, "What i for the "In all fairness owners, from depriving erty ownership, it prudent that they been invited to have ed in any findings rive to Arnold said interest in the objects to the that this taking i, ducted and will edy in the event this is passed.
