  • Marsh will introduce JPA legislation in February
  • Hobson City to hold town meeting
  • Water wars continue
  • JPA approves amended budget

 

Marsh will introduce JPA legislation in February

The issue of whether the JPA legally exists is likely to be answered in February.  The legality of the JPA has been the subject of lawsuits in which judges have suggested the legislature take action to resolve any questions.  While the local delegation has in the past said the legislation is not necessary,  JPA member, Senator Del Marsh said while he is confident the JPA is a legal entity, he plans to introduce legislation when the legislature convenes in February to clear the air.   Suits have been filed challenging the JPA’s authority to sell property alleging that the authority was not officially created under state law. 

 

Hobson City residents vocal during town hall meeting

About 50 of the more than 800 residents of Hobson City turned out  Monday night for a town hall meeting at New Hope Baptist Church in Hobson City. Mayor Ralph Woods said he was pleased with the turnout Wood and the Town Council had called the town hall meeting last week to gain input and suggestions from residents.  Mayor Wood said residents voiced some valid concerns.  Woods said that he would take the ideas presented Monday night and work with the council to establish a citizens advisory board to start overseeing town improvement projects.

 

 

Water wars continue 

The Water wars are continuing between Alabama and Georgia despite last week's rainfall.  The two states remain at odds over water in the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa River Basin -- which includes Allatoona and Carters lakes in northwest Georgia.  During a teleconference with representatives from both states last week, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials said they are considering a reduction in the amount of water released from Allatoona Lake by the end of the month. Alabama opposes that plan.  This week, the two states and Florida will square off again in court over another waterway -- the Chattahoochee River. Separate lawsuits over the river have been bundled into one case being heard in the U.S. District Court of the Middle District of Florida.  In the debate between Alabama and Florida, officials in Alabama worry that dredging on the Alabama River will have to stop if water levels get too low. The Corps is dredging the river to make room for barges serving mills and other manufacturers.  Alabama also is concerned about having enough water to operate power plants and pulp and paper mills.

 

JPA approves amended budget 

Citing concerns over a slowdown in property sales,  The Joint Powers Authority board amended the proposed budget, trimming back on demolition costs, as well as moving the funds for a marketing director into the general payroll as well as cutting legal costs from over a hundred thousand dollars to just fifty thousand dollars,   the board also cut out a proposed four percent raise for JPA employees.  JPA member Senator Del Marsh, said the budget hinges on closing a sale to Intellimed   JPA vice chairman Anniston Mayor Chip Howell said that the JPA  must prepare to lean years. The JPA is expected to revisit the budget issues in December.
