Councilmen Charlie E Martin, Jimmy Jackson and Bobby Lee Frazier voted to allocate that money in the next budget year, which begins in July. Initially, Martin suggest- ed setting aside $10,000 to support the club, which is expected to be operational sometime before July. But Jackson amended Martin's proposal, calling for the $15,000 set-aside and Martin and Frazier voted with him to make the city's obligation $15,000. Councilman Jack Leidner, while making it clear that the strongly supports a Boys and Girls Club for Hogansville, said voting for the $15,000 allocation would have been fiscally irrespon- sible, given that the city is already operating on a tight budget. He abstained rather than vote for the higher figure and Councilwoman Jean Crocker was absent from the Monday night meeting. The $5,000 difference ing in the Georgia Municipal Association's magazine and on a couple of Internet sites. Interested persons will be asked to submit resumes by Jan. 19, St. Clair said. The advertisements won't list a salary range. That is something that will be worked out prior to or during dis- cussions with the candidates, St. Clair said. Aldrich, who resigned after several months of wrangling by the City Council between the two proposals could have gone a long way toward a variety of infra- structure, needs, Leidner said. A Boys and Girls Club will be a good thing for the youth of the city, Leidner said. "Most important is how it affects people's lives." The council voted for the establishment of the club in Hogansville after hearing a pitch from Wiley West, who is executive director bf the Boys and Girls Clubs of West Georgia, which includes LaGrange and West Point. West said that Boys and Girls Club programs provide a wide range of opportunities for youngsters, including after-school tutoring and summer programs that dan begin at 7 a.m. or earlier in order to accommodate chil- dren of working parents. It was unclear exactly when the program will begin in Hogansville, but Leidner said he expects it will be before July. West said some of the future funding of the club 'could come frorrfbusinesses and grants and possibly from United Way. Martin has been pushing for months to get a Boys and Girls Club organized and run- ning in Hogansville.

Eventually, with Butcher's downfall due to allegations of financial improprieties, Arnold ended up again in control of the property and its future.
