There is an application process to be followed and Striblin said the applications must be in by June, which leaves little time. Striblin said no cost is involved but that a steering committee had to be estab- lished. The committee mem- bers would attend confer- ences that are provided at no charge. During the confer- ences, the steering commit- tee would receive technical assistance and help in devel- oping a plan applicable to Hogansville. "This is a three- year program," she told the council. Striblin noted that last year 12 cities applied for the program and only five were accepted. Council member Jack I~idner asked about the cost involved, and was told that while the conferences were free, travel and motel expense could be involved. "We need all the help we can get," commented coun- cil member Jean Crocker. Mayor Jimmy Jackson authorized Striblin to obtain volunteers from the city to work on the steering com- mittee.

The aforementioned vil- lain is masterfully played by a woman, Kristen Mansour. Somehow she summons the spirit of a deceitful ser- pent who will kiss you to bite you. Her movement person- ifies a wind-strewn tumble- weed while simultaneously strutting as a bold peacock. The evil incarnate Bill Sikes is masterfully played by Jason Bledsoe. Let's thank God for good- ness, innocence and empathy for our leading hero, Oliver, who is affectively played by Ian Turner. Turner's performance is fresh and honest. He portrays a child lost and searching.

"I don't have anything ....... against an officer driving a car home, but I do have an opinion on how far they drive, how much it's costing the cit- izens," Pike said. Ector responded saying that "95 percent of the police department was operated off drug seized money." ::' It has previously been reported the Hogansville Police Department funds the purchase of police cars through drug seized money. The department has seized a number of vehicles that have been used by other city departments, including the car used by the probation offi- cer. This has also served to save taxpayer dollars. The drug fund has been used to support on city programs, including the Boys and Girls Club. ..... Jackson noted that in 2006, when the decision was made to allow police officers to take patrol cars home, each officer was supposed to pay $30 per month for the gasm line expense. Council member Bobby Joe Frazier said that wheri the decision to allow officers to take patrol cars home was made, the provision to asses a $30 fee did not include the chief and assistant chief. He noted that Hogansville did not have a probation officer at that time. Frazier said allowing take home caius was used to help attract and keep police offi= cers. " "If Moses (Chief Ector) lived 75 miles from here, I'm glad he's coming every day,', said Frazier. "I don't care if he drives 100 miles per day. I'd rather him be here and do the things he has done for this city." Worthy continued to ask for a policy to be established and a possible fee schedule. No action was taken on the issue, but Jackson appointed a committee consist.ing of Ector and Stankiewicz along with council members Crocker and Pike to meet and recommend a policy and pos- sible fee schedule.
