Judge Dissolves JPA giving development job to County Commission 

Calhoun County Commissioners will meet tuesday to begin decisions on how they will handle the development of the former Fort Mcclellan following a Friday court ruling declaring the Joint Powers authority was not a legal entity and transferring the mcclellan property to the county.  Circuit court judge Joel Laird issued the ruling Friday ordering the JPA assets be immediately transferred to Calhoun County directing the county to develop the former fort.  Judge Laird named Calhoun County administrator Ken Joiner as the courts receiver.  It is unsure whether the ruling would be appealed with the JPA being dissolved and their funds transferred to county control.  The County Commission, while faced with the development of the former fort, may have some legislative direction.  In 1975, with the closure of McClellan already announced, the legislature passed legislation placing re-development of the former fort in the county commissions control.  The legislature later amended the law in 1982, in a bill submitted by then Representative Mike Rogers to set up the creation of the Calhoun County Economic Development Council to assist in the development effort.  The act, approved by the legislature in the 1982 regular session, created a board of 9 members and one ex officio non voting member.  Five of the members were to be appointed by the legislative delegation, two by the county commission, and two appointed by the council of mayors and set term limits for all of the appointees.  In his Friday ruling, judge Laird said his ruling will not affect any prior transactions or sales of property by the JPA.  Laird also directed the JPA staff for the immediate future to work for the county commission on McClellan Development.  Commission chairman Eli Henderson said the county will try to take the politics out of McClellan redevelopment saying the county commission would set up a board or committee made of up professional people with real expertise.

School Suit Dismissed 

A lawsuit challenging the hiring of Anniston City Schools Superintendent Joan Frazier was dismissed Friday. Circuit Court Judge John Thomason said state law and an attorney general's opinion back the board's decision to hire Frazier without advertising the position. The board hired Frazier, on April 24. In May, the Birmingham education reform group Citizens for Better Schools sued the school board, claiming it had violated the Open Meetings Act by meeting secretly before the meeting at which Frazier was hired. The group also argued the school board did not properly advertise the position.
