Crews, who lives at 310 Taliaferro, sad he doesn't mind "the old house (but) it's become a dump yard out there." He presented the council with a peti- tion calling on the city to get rid of the offending structure. Crews said he'd called on the city for help in the past, but never gotten any relief. "It's been three years" of on-going efforts to get rid of the house, Crews said: "I'd like to see this taken care of in my lifetime." City Manager David Aldrich said he'll try again. But it's not that the city the problem, Aldrich said: house couldn't be condemned l it was structurally sound, the building inspector. Later, he said, the city against the out-of-state nuisance statute but couldn't: ently because the city has under that statute over beyond Georgia's borders. Crocker's Proposal Fails Continued From Page 1A shall be subject to reprimand, up to and including termina- tion," had her resolution been adopted. After twice calling for a "second" to Crocker's motion, Mayor Wilson St. Clair declared it "dead for lack of a second." The effort by Crocker, even though it failed, didn't sit well with Councilman Bobby Joe Frazier, who owns a downtown business that has city utilities service even though Frazier has never paid the $300 deposit that is supposedly required. The word "supposedly" is intentional because Frazier says the requirement is a myth: From utility records going back to 2001, Frazier said, he's learned that "some people have paid as little as $2.50 for a deposit while some people have paid up to $600." He says the difference may be "how you are dressed" or who you are, an implica- tion that the deposits aren't fairly imposed or that some people receive preferential treatment. He has never refused to pay a deposit, Frazier said. When he signed up for utili- ty service, he reiterated, somebody at City Hall "just America's Home Place asked me if Iwanted to pay a deposit and I said 'no.'" Wee don't have a policy in place that we enforce. When you get the policies straight so that everybody has to do, the same, I'll pay mine," he said during the council meet- ing. After the meeting, he said the Crocker motion was part of an on-going attempt by "a group of people trying to go up against anther group of people," the implication being that the on-going fuss over expense money and his unpaid utility deposit is a black-white issue. "But this has nothing to do with race," he said. "it keeps coming up because I'm pushing to get rid of the city manager. It needs to come up again." A vote several weeks back that would have dis- missed City Manager David Aldrich was vetoed by Mayor Wilson St. Clair. He wants Aldrich ousted because policies and proce- dures that "should have been in place in a short time to make this city more efficient" are still missing, Jackson said. "It (the matter of Aldrich's termination) needs to come up again." He won't stay quiet, Jackson warned: "If they want me to shut up, there are other avenues they've going to have to take." Continuing to bring up "that little (utility) deposit" is just another way of attack- hag hh Jackson Isaid.., .: v, ':* Crockerfl not explain her motion except to say that council members ought to "avoid any appearance of impropriety" in their dealings LOOKING FOR FISH - Dakota McCormick, 4, County Line Community 9 f Troup County, watching the fish at Rodgei Barbecue in last Tuesday. ,S[,I i?
