Fuel shortage in Calhoun County 

Fuel availability has become a problem with Calhoun County.  Commissioners were told Thursday that the lack of gasoline has caused problems in both the county road department as well as the sheriffs department.  A local gasoline distributor told commissioners Thursday that the majority of gasoline delivered thru the pipeline at the Murphy oil terminal in oxford is being trucked out of the area and in many cases out of the state while local supplies remain scarce.  County commissioner Robert Downey said the fuel problems raises concerns. Downing said it not only causes problems because of the lack of gas, but it also is having an impact on the local economy as the stations without gas are suffering from retail sales as well.

 

McClellan development 

Calhoun County commissioners are still waiting on Army approval of documents that would give the commission access to more than $200 million in unexploded ordnance cleanup funds at the former fort McClellan. The commission needs the money so that it can pay contractors doing cleanup work at McClellan.  Meanwhile the commission is continuing to discuss creation of a new land use authority to oversee McClellan development.  As the city of Anniston is considering taking action for the city to control the development effort, County commission chairman Eli Henderson is hoping the city will join the county in the development effort. Some city officials may agree, it does not sit well with Anniston councilman Ben Little. The McClellan development offices at McClellan will be relocating because of environmental problems in their current location at the headquarters building.  They will be relocating to another building on the McClellan campus.
