LIBERTY CITY COUNCIL MET IN SPECIAL SESSION THURSDAY

 

The Liberty City Council held a Special called Meeting this afternoon at City Hall.


At the top of the agenda was a 2nd Reading of an Ordinance Approving a Mayor Pro Tem to preside over council meetings in the absence of Mayor Steven Brown. Councilman Richard Montgomery requested a discussion prior to voting...
 


Former City Councilman, Doug Johnson, suggested the council member who received the most votes should automatically be named to that position, instead of allowing the council to decide...
 


The Council voted to approve that Ordinance, naming Micah Meece as Mayor Pro-Tem. Meece was also the top vote getter among the council in the last election.


Another Ordinance scheduled for a 2nd Reading was aimed at approving a Franchise Agreement with Charter Communications, concerning Cable Fees in the City. That item was tabled for the next meeting to allow for further study.


Two other Ordinances were approved for 2nd Reading, one amending the 2018/19 Budget, the other adopting the 2019/20 Budget, both were approved.


The next regular sheduled meeting of the Liberty City Council will be July 8th.

RUSSELL CO BROTHERS INDICTED FOR BANK FRAUD

 

Two Russell County brothers have been indicted on federal bank fraud charges.

 

Adam Hill and Jeremy Hill were indicted by a federal grand jury in Bowling Green last Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

 

According to the indictment, in 2010 Jeremy Hill allegedly tried to obtain a loan for the consolidation of his debts, but was unable to due to having bad credit. 

Jeremy Hill then allegedly got a friend to obtain the loan and give him the money. That loan came though Adam Hill (Jeremy’s brother) who worked as a loan officer at the time. Due to non-payment, the loan eventually fell into default and Jeremy’s friend had to declare bankruptcy.

 

According to the Federal Bank FraudStatute, the maximum penalty a defendant can receive is 30 years and a 1 million dollar fine, with average sentence being 3 to 7 years depending on the specifics of the specific of the case.

 

Any indictment is an accusation only. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
