Thrower to run for Oxford Mayor 

Oxford City Councilman Greg Thrower announced Tuesday that he will not be  running for re-election for his council seat but will qualify instead for mayor in the 2008 city election. The 55-year-old Thrower who is completing his second term on the council said he had been approached by a number of residents about running for mayor since the summer 2007 and after talking the decision over with his wife, Alice Walker Thrower, he’s decided to run. Thrower has worked at the Anniston Army Depot for 29 years and is eligible to retire at any time. He is currently a supervisor at the depot. Oxford Mayor Leon Smith, said it was too early to announce if he’d run for a seventh term.  But Smith said he is not saying he wouldn’t run.  Municipal elections for most cities in Alabama are set for Aug. 26. The official qualifying period for candidates begins July 1. The last day to qualify is July 15.  


Jacksonville council eyes city hall project  

The Jacksonville City council has renewed their efforts to find a remedy for the growing pains of city hall.  Mayor Johnny Smith had asked council members for suggestions and several were discussed Monday night.  Councilman Charles Notar is proposing that the city renovate the two story building at the Union Mill and move city hall, the water department, RSVP, the civil service board and the library to the site as well as purchasing the land where the current three story building stands on the property.  That building is set to be demolished by the end of the year.  Notar is also proposing the city sell the current city hall and library properties as well as destroying the old community center on Ladiga street for parking.  As far as the cost for the renovation  Notar proposes a two million dollar cap.  Mayor Johnny Smith also had several proposals to build a new city hall at several possible locations in the city. The cities finance committee will meet later this month to mull over the cities options.   



Anniston councilman seeks to have manager placed on leave 

In a called meeting Monday afternoon, the Anniston city council directed city manager George Monk to advertise for bids for a new trash pickup contract for the city. The council also authorized Mayor Chip Howell to coordinate an independent investigation of Monks actions toward Anniston resident Freddy Rimpsey.

Councilman Ben Little wanted to put Monk on leave while the council investigated how he handled the garbage contract but was unable to gain a second his motion. He promised to bring the request up again at a future meeting.

During the last two city council meetings, Rimpsey accused Monk of personally harassed him. According to the mayor "Rimpsey’s  accusations were there was an incident at his home and that Mr. Monk came to his home and made comments he felt were inappropriate and out of place," .Monk, who lives near Rimpsey, said his story could be "quickly debunked."  Howell said he wanted the investigation wrapped up as quickly as possible.  


Guilty plea in traffic death
