City OK's Agreement,, But 'Nobody is Happ3,' By Bryan Geter Associate Editor The Hogansville City Council in a called meeting Thursday voted unanimously to approve the Service Delivery Strategy agreement under House Bill 489. The decision had to be approved by either Hogansville or West Point before it could become effective. Troup is the last county in the state to approve the agreement. West Point was expected to vote on the compromise yester- day. After West Point's approval, the agreement will be delivered to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA). Hogansville City Manager David Aldrich said Thursday this is a culmination of two years of work. "The county and cities have worked hand and hand," Aldrich said. "Nobody is happy and everybody is in the middle. It is about as good a proposal as we are going to get." He said it was a fair deal but no one is thrilled about it. "'We are glad it is behind us," Aldrich said. Under the bill, Hogansville will begin paying half of the expenses of the county fire sta- tion, which will be about $140,000 annually. The county will pay for the recreational facilities, libraries and inmate details.
