Jacksonville city council budget woes 

Like other cities across Alabama, The Jacksonville City Council is facing projections of slower growth in the coming year.  The city is being forced to use money from investments to make up for slower projected economic growth and several outstanding city projects in the cities budget set to be voted on Monday night. The city is proposing to use about $400,000 left over from the sale of Jacksonville Hospital and $330,000 from the Alabama Trust Fund to cover the revenue shortfall in the new budget. City employees still will receive a 2 percent across-the-board raise in addition to their normal step raises. Economic factors have forced the city to lower their projected growth from 5 to 3 percent. If approved Monday night, the budget calls for spending up to $200,000 to repair damage to the old Wal-Mart building, where thieves damaged the structure by stealing copper, as well as $180,000 to help pay for renovations to the train depot. After all is said and done, officials say , the city will still have about $4 million in reserve.



Alabama Power seeks rate increase 

Alabama Power Co. is seeking approval for additional charges, in addition to a rate increase already proposed for higher fuel costs, that combined would have the typical household paying more than $15 more each month. The power giant will propose the increases today to the Pubic Service Commission. The power company is seeking to raise the base charge residential customers pay from $8.91 to $15 a month. The base charge is a flat rate for connecting an Alabama Power account. In addition, the company is proposing its first ever late fee of $2 or 1.5 percent of a late bill, whichever is higher. The increases, first filed with the Public Service Commission, a few weeks ago, could be voted on today. The PSC is already scheduled to vote on increased fuel charges that Alabama Power has proposed. A typical household that uses 1,000 kilowatt hours monthly would pay $9.30 more each month if the fuel charge increase is approved. Together the fuel charge increase and the base charge increase would mean a typical residential customer would pay more than $15 a month.


McClellan inventory appraisal complete 

An appraisal of real estate and buildings at the former fort McClellan has been completed.  Calhoun County ordered an appraisal of the property after being given the responsibility of McClellan re-development thru a court ruling. The appraisals were necessary because the property must be placed on the counties books as assets.  Meanwhile, the battle continues over control of the former fort with the current Anniston city council filing suit last week.  Jointer says that the suit has placed in jeopardy the cleanup money from the army to continue the cleanup effort at McClellan.  Attorneys continue to work for an interim agreement to prevent cleanup operations from stopping while a final decision is made to resolve the issues over McClellan re-development.
