Anniston works on budget, dog ordinance on back burner

The revision of Anniston’s animal control ordinance has been placed on the back burner as the councils time has been consumed with budget meetings.  Mayor Chip Howell says the council is spending an enormous amount of time scrutinizing the budget.  Councilman Ben Little said he is very pleased with the current budget process.  The city must approve the budget within the next several weeks.  On the animal control issue, councilmen said Tuesday night that it will be their next issue once the budget is approved.  In the meantime city manager George Monk said that the police department has been concentrating efforts in the area of dangerous dogs. Monk said that they have been looking at ordinances passed by other cities and expects that the council will end up with the creation of a good enforceable ordinance to protect the public.

 

 

Oxford library construction 

Construction of the new Oxford City Library is on schedule and the building should be ready by November, but Oxford Councilwoman June Reaves is worried that delays on items for the new library may delay its opening or cause some safety concerns. Mayor Leon Smith approves orders on furniture for the library and has been critical of Reaves' stated needs for the building.  While Saying that he was not against the library, the mayor said he is against the size of the library and said he would be against the size of it for the next ten years. The main concern Reaves said she had was shelving for the library. She said that End pieces and the canopy for the shelving have not been ordered, and Reeves said that without complete sets it is unsafe to place books on the shelves.  The mayor also announced that Kohl's, a department store chain, will locate a store at the Oxford Exchange.  He did not have an estimated opening date, but said the building would likely be about 68,000 square feet.
 

Depot funding clears hurdle 

Sen. Richard Shelby announced Tuesday the subcommittee approval of more than $1.7 billion in funding for work at the Anniston Army Depot. The Department of Defense Appropriations Bill for fiscal year 2008, which includes the funds, is scheduled for a full committee vote today. If approved, the bill will then go to the Senate floor for a full vote. The bulk of the money, over a billion dollars, is earmarked for production of the Stryker vehicle for the next fiscal year. The depot will assemble 27 Stryker vehicles. In past years the facility has built more than 100 a year. Officials said $600 million will pay to build the 27 vehicles and the remaining $429 million is for technical support for the entire Stryker fleet. Shelby said The remainder of the money is divided up into about $588 million for the Abrams tank, $2 million for asset tracking and workflow management, and $1.5 million for investments to improve production capability.

 

Highway funding 

The Department of Transportation's $8 billion, five-year road plan was released this week, and it includes $991 billion in spending in Northeast Alabama.  The five-year plan includes spending $654 million in federal money on the eastern leg of the Memphis-to-Atlanta highway in DeKalb County, nearly $80 million to extend Interstate 759 into east Gadsden, nearly $53 million on improvements to U.S. Highway 411 northeast of Gadsden and $35.9 million to resurface Interstate 59 from northeast of Steele.  Cherokee County is to get $11.6 million with $6 million of it for bridges and $5 million for roadwork on Alabama Highway 35 near Little River Canyon.  Marshall County is to get $32.2 million in spending including $14.6 million on right-of-way costs for the Memphis-to-Atlanta highway leg that will begin in western Limestone County and in Lawrence County.
