  • Oxford asked to consider tax holiday
  • Attalla officer injured in chase
  • Lease signed to move YMCA headquarters to Oxford


Anniston prepared to pursue scrap yard cleanup 

 Anniston city officials are preparing for another possible round in court with the operators of an Anniston scrap metal business.  The city had won a court case against Williams Scrap Metal on Noble Street.  According to Anniston city manager George Monk it gave the business 30 days to comply with the court ordered cleanup which ended on May 11th.  Monk said he has instructed the city attorney to draft a letter to the Williams attorneys regarding the cleanup.  Officials say that the business has placed scrap along the right of way creating an eyesore in the area.


Oxford asked to consider tax holiday 

While the legislature has approved a sales tax holiday for the first weekend in August, not every city and county has agreed to participate by rolling back their sales taxes.  Oxford Mayor Leon Smith says he has strong reservations about the proposed tax roll back.  The Mayors concerns were that people from Georgia were coming to Oxford and Quintard Mall.  The Malls general manager has presented the Oxford council with a petition from mall merchants supporting the tax holiday.  Georgia also has a sales tax holiday the same weekend.  Mayor Smith said if the city decided to participate it should be done on a year by year basis to measure the impact on the city.



Attalla officer injured in chase 

Officials say that a 32 year old Albertville man is expected to be charged with attempted murder after striking an Attalla police officer’s car head on during a Wednesday night chase.  According to police, Attalla Police Lt. Kris Yancey spotted a car speeding on U.S. 11 in Attalla.  At one point the driver stopped and as the officer was exiting his car the man sped away.  Yancey then called for backup and other Attalla and Collinsville officers as well as Etowah County deputies responded and attempted to stop the car with spike strips just north of Reece City.  Yancey then backed off and stopped putting his vehicle in park.  The driver of the car then did a u-turn driving head on into Yancey’s patrol car knocking it 24 feet.  Yancey got out of the car but collapsed.  Another officer arrived and a passing motorist stopped to help,  the officer pursued the vehicle while the motorist stayed with Yancey until medics arrived.  The man wrecked about a mile away on U.S. 11 north and fled into woods.  Search dogs were called in from the St. Clair Correctional Facility and the man was captured within 15 minutes.  The man was not identified but is expected to fact felony charges of attempted murder, second degree assault and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries as well as several misdemeanor charges related to the chase including driving under the influence.  Lt. Yancey remained in the hospital late Thursday.


Lease signed to move YMCA headquarters to Oxford 

Oxford officials signed a lease with the Calhoun County YMCA Thursday morning which finalized an agreement to bring the Y’s new headquarters to Oxford. The lease signing was the result of year long negotiations on the proposal to build the new YMCA facility on Leon Smith Parkway. YMCA officials have said that with a successful fund-raising campaign, the new Y could open in Oxford within three to five years.
