Funding for Unemployment Centers Set to Expire

Legislation extending funding for Alabama’s job assistance programs has yet to be approved by the Alabama Legislature.   The legislation was originally passed in 1988 and has been extended five times.  The last extension will expire on March 31st unless it is extended by the legislature.  The funding, termed an Enhancement does not increase employer taxes, it is a state supplement to the states employment assistance program brought about because of declining federal grants to fund the program.  The State Employment service in recent years was forced to close or reduce services at many offices due to the loss of 4.8 million dollars in federal funding.  The department of Industrial relations closed 22 offices last summer.  The enhancement legislation allows the Department of Industrial Relations to set aside a portion of the state unemployment insurance premiums paid by employers to fund personnel in both the employment service and unemployment sections of the department to get people off of unemployment and back to work.  Officials estimate that if the enhancement were not approved, only ten offices in the stat would remain open with center located only in the major population centers of the state.  Currently the legislation to extend the enhancement is stuck in the senate Government affairs committee and the house commerce committee with no indication on when they might be passed out for a vote.  With the clock ticking, department of industrial relations officials are continuing their push to get the extension approved before it’s expiration at the end of this month.
 

Gadsden Police Tough on Litter Law

The Gadsden Police Department has stepped up their enforcement of the city’s littler laws.  But some people who have been ticketed believe that the officers are taking the issue to an extreme.  Police have ticketed a number of people for “ashes on roadway” when officers observed them flicking cigarette ashes from their vehicle window.  The Gadsden litter ordinance specifically lists ashes as refuse as solid waste.  Gadsden police officers have been working a litter detail as part of the city’s efforts to step up enforcement of the law.
 

Moody City leaders looking for where to spend new money

The City of Moody is looking over their budget numbers for this year after additional revenue has started flowing in from the city’s rebounding business areas.  Mayor Joe Lee has asked department heads to look at some basic needs that they may have left out of the city’s 7.3 million dollar budget this year.  The city is now expecting to receive between $130,000 to $150,000 in additional revenue this year as a result of the opening of a new Food Giant Grocery store and Racetrac gas station off interstate 20 in addition to the construction of a new cellular phone tower in the city.  Moody, along with other cities in St. Clair County have experienced sales tax growth over the past two years due to increased consumer spending.
 

 

Republicans expecting to run strong in Calhoun County

Calhoun County Republicans say they are expecting to run a larger number of candidates this election year.  The Calhoun County Republican Party held their first annual ladies gala Sadie Hawkins Social Saturday evening at the barn restaurant in Jacksonville.  Calhoun County Republican Executive committee chairman Tony Moreland said they expect to run candidates in all but maybe two local races this year.  Already two republicans have qualified for Circuit Judge, Three for Probate Judge, one for coroner one for county commission and two for the county school board.  Moreland says the republican successes in the south began with former president Ronald Regan  when Alabama voters began to see a real difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties.The state republican party  is pushing to retain the governors house as well as making gains in the democratic controlled legislature.
