Currently, utility deposits range upwards from $200, depending on whether a resident is renting or owns his home and on his or her credit references. The ethics policy was and the new policy regarding officials' travel on city busi- ness were both unanimously approved. Those policies sprang in part from controversy ove r reimbursement of the city for two trips - to Savannah and Atlanta - by a couple of city council members and from allegations that some council members were inter- fering in city operations by dealing directly with employ- ees rather than going through the city manager. I I Jackson Doesn't Owe Hoga00vffle In two recent stories about politics and policies in Hogansville, the names of City Council members Jimmy Jackson and Bobby Joe Frazier were inadvertently mixed up. It was Councilman Bobby Joe Frazier whom offi- cials have accused of never having paid at least the $300 required deposit for utilities on a business that Frazier owns downtown. But Frazier said Monday night that he owes the nothing, because he has never been asked for a utility deposit and that he has never received a bill nor a let- ter requesting a deposit. "That was all over in January," Frazier said. Jackson was one of two City Council members that was tardy on reimbursing the city for a claimed over- payment of advance expense for two trips on city busi- ness this year and last. But Jackson recently paid the approximately $111 it was claimed that he owed the city. We regret the errors and any problems caused by those two stories.

Aldrich, in his letter of resignation, said, "It is with mixed emotions that I tender my resignation...I am pleased with the progress we have made over the last five years and I want to thank everyone who has helped along the way. The job is not yet complete, but the city is in a position to start making positive moves. The audit reflects a positive swing of over $900,000 over the last five years..." without a tax increase. "The lawsuits that were looming over the city when I arrived have been settled and we have been fortunate to stay clear of new lawsuits seeking monetary damages."
