City abandons alley way in neighborhood dispute

AMORY – In a follow up to an alley dispute among neighbors, the board has determined that the city has constructively abandoned the alley.
“If the board finds that the city has not used the alley in over 10 years, that constitutes abandonment and the property goes to the adjoining landowners,” said City Attorney John Creekmore.
The board approved a waiver request from Danny Sanders on the rental and deposit fee to use the National Guard Old Armory for the Cruisin’ Flashback Classic car Display and Sock Hop Aug. 23. All of the proceeds go directly back into the Old Armory Reborn fund through the CREATE Foundation.
In other business, the board approved:
• The appointments of Curtis Lewellen, Phillip Hathcock and Floyd Smith to the election commission.
• The appointments of Pam Caldwell and Kathy Nerren to the museum board.
In an executive session, Amory Code Enforcement Officer Russell Butler was granted permission to contact local businesses who are delinquent on their privilege licenses.

    How small town can you get? Did anyone really expect the aldermen to have the courage to stand up to the friends of the mayor and the city attorney? The current administration is a joke.
