  • TVA reducing wholesale power rates
  • States lifts no-consumption ban on some Coosa River fishing


 Anniston Water & Sewer Board files suit against City of Oxford 

The Oxford Water Works and the city of Oxford is being sued by the Anniston Water and Sewer Board in an attempt to block Oxford from providing water service to the new Kronospan factory in the Bynum area.   Austrian based Kronospan, , is the world's largest producer of wood-based panels and particleboard. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified monetary damages and a permanent injunction to prevent the city of Oxford from installing new water mains in Anniston’s service area.  Anniston Water Works General Manager Jim Miller said he filed the lawsuit to protect Anniston customers from rate hikes. Miller Said that Anniston has historically served the Bynum area, and that Losing service to Kronospan would hurt Anniston residents.   Oxford officials said Thursday they had not yet seen the lawsuit.   Connell said in a press release that Kronospan has an agreement with the city of Oxford and the Oxford Water Board for service. The new plant will need water service to test fire-suppression equipment in August.   And company officials say that unless the issue is resolved, it could delay the opening of the plant. 


Calhoun Democrats deadlocked on School Board Candidate selection 

The Calhoun County Democratic Committee will vote Monday on a candidate for the county school board after failing to break a voting deadlock between two candidates Thursday.   Trudy Hardegree, of Alexandria, and David Zeigler, of Saks, both applied to the committee for a place on the November ballot as a candidate for Calhoun County Board of Education.   After two ballots Thursday, the 16 committee members were deadlocked in a tie, with each applicant receiving eight votes.   The committee is scheduled to reconvene at 6 p.m. Monday at the City Meeting Center.   Democrats must name their candidate to replace Guy Howell, who died in June, by Tuesday.




TVA Reducing wholesale power rates 

Tennessee Valley Authority directors on Friday approved a cut in wholesale electric rates less than six months after they last raised them because of rising fuel costs.  The 4.5 percent rate decrease - worth about $400 million - will take effect Oct. 1.  The rate proposal was contained in a $9.3 billion fiscal 2007 budget approved by the agency's board of directors.  TVA is the nation's largest public utility. Although it is a federal corporation, TVA receives no federal funding. The agency is financed exclusively by revenues from electric sales to 158 distributors in Tennessee and six surrounding states including Alabama.  TVA began the current fiscal year with a 7.5 percent rate increase, which distributors passed on to consumers, averaging $3.50 to $6.50 more a month per household. The agency raised rates again - by 9.95 percent - effective April 1 when fuel and purchased power costs continued to climb. It was TVA's first midyear rate hike in at least 25 years.  Beginning with the new fiscal year, TVA plans to keep the base rate untouched and adopt a policy of quarterly fuel adjustments charges to cover any changes in fuel and bought power costs.  It is uncertain whether or not the Cherokee Electric Cooperative, who purchase power from TVA will pass the 4.5% rate cut on to their customers


State lifts no-consumption ban on some Coosa River fishing 

The Alabama Public Health Department lifted its no-consumption advisory for several fish in the Coosa River Thursday.   The department cleared crappie, blue catfish and spotted bass fished from the river at Lay Reservoir. The consumption advisory for striped bass was left intact for Lay and the Logan Martin Dam.   A no-consumption advisory is issued when analysis reveals the presence contaminants, such as mercury or PCBs, at levels that exceed FDA approval. The following advisories remain in effect for fish caught in the Coosa River: Catfish caught between Neely Henry Dam and Riverside; striped bass caught between Riverside and Logan Martin Dam; striped bass caught between Logan Martin Dam and railroad tracks near Vincent; striped bass caught in Lay Lake between Logan Martin Dam and Lay Dam.
