Piedmont appoints new councilman
a unanimous vote Monday night the Piedmont Mayor and Council
appointed Kenny Kelly to fill the unexpired term of councilman Kevin
Farmer in District 4. Farmer resigned from the council because he
sold his home and has relocated outside his council district in the
city. Kelly said he looks forward to serving the residents of
district 4. The city council is very close to approving a new
budget, scheduled to be considered at their next meeting. Faced
with declining revenues in some utility departments, Mayor Charlie
Fagan says it will be a tight budget. Kelly will be sworn in prior
to the councils next meeting later this month.

says the trail will be one of the keys to growth and development in
the Piedmont . The official opening of the trail is expected in
October or November.

Munford students charged with school arson
Two Munford students have been arrested after
starting a fire inside a boys’ bathroom at Munford High School on
Aug. 28. 16 year old Andre Stephon Armbrester, was arrested and
charged as an adult with arson. He was held in the Talladega County
Jail and is free on a $25,000 bond. The second student, whose name
cannot be released because he is 14 years old and was charged as a
juvenile, was turned over to the juvenile detention center and is
still in custody. The Talladega County Sheriff’s Department was
called to the school around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 28, after
another student found the fire in the bathroom. Since school was in
session, the building was occupied by approximately 760 students and
faculty members at the time. Authorities said the only materials the
young men appeared to have brought into the school with them was a
cigarette lighter. They used other materials inside the bathroom to
start the blaze and then left to return to class.
