City Administrator David Aldrich said that it was a state requirement. The legislature has worked for several years to have in place a "unifrom chart of accounts" for the entire state. Aldrich said Hogansville completed theirs in June and is in place. He said the only changes are in the numbering system. The reason for this chart is that Georgia has 159 coun- ties and 535 cities and the state wanted a unified num- ber system. "The state want- ed some kind of continuity," Aldrich stated. He said if you would pull up the larger ciites chart, it would be the same as the smaller one with the only dif- ference being that the larg- er cities may be more expand- ed due to having more expen- itures than the smaller cities. *Aldrich told the council that three dilapidated hous- es come down in the city last week The houses were on Crankston Drive, King Street and Popular Street. %Ve need now to start on our fourth list of houses to be demolished," he stated. Aldrich assured the coun- cil that the T-21 streetscape project is moving forward. he said he will meet with three architects this week.
