Montgomery Advertiser j 4B Thursday, February 15, 1996 THOUGHTFUL NEIGHBORS PLAN from page IB ' "Time is of the essense, but you don't want to become reactionary," ' said Commissioner Paul Payne. - Meanwhile, commissioners, who were complimentary of the committee when its report was given Feb. 1, reacted differently during a Monday committee meeting. "Very little was done by the Elmore 2000 Commission that we didn't give them," said Mr. Holley. "With the exception of two or three things, nothing in that report was new." Among the committee's recommendations were taxes on lodging, lease equipment, minerals, automobile tags and gasoline. The committee discouraged the renewal of a countywide 1-cent sales tax being used now to pay for the cost of an almost $10 million jail and judicial complex. The tax is scheduled to end after payment for the buildings. However, Mr. Holley said a round of public meetings lasf year found residents favored the continuation of tax over other recommendations. yA NAME TIME DATE FUNERAL HOME BURDICK, IcieObie 10 om Februoryl5 White Chopel COOK, B.

The event was part of a National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans held at VA medical centers throughout the nation. Anita Folmar, wife of Montgomery Mayor Emory Folmar, headed the list of guests at the Montgomery center. Mr$. Folmar said she has attended the events every year since she once stood in for the mayor, whose schedule prevented him from attending one of the salutes several years ago.
