CCCDC reconvenes Tuesday
Jan 06, 2013 (The Cullman Times - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
After a month's hiatus due to the Christmas holiday, the Cullman County Community Development Commission is scheduled to reconvene Tuesday for its regular meeting.
It will take place at 6 p.m. at the West Point High School library.
Because allotted TVA monies, along with money from beer and liquor sales were not available at the time of the CCCDC meeting in November, a limited amount of funds were given away at the meeting.
"We anticipate in January that we will have both November and December funds available to give out," a spokesperson with the organization said.
A second meeting is scheduled for Jan. 29 at the Cold Springs High School library to distribute funds from January.
The CCCDC was created through a House bill passed in the Alabama Legislature in 2009. According to an Alabama statue passed in 2006, all counties who receive certain monies were required to pass local legislation to distribute it. The TVA money accounts for an extra three percent added to the 75 percent of funding north Alabama counties receive from TVA's annual in-lieu-of-taxes payment to the state. The three percent is paid only to dry counties that are TVA customers.
As stipulated in the bill, 50 percent of the alcohol money is automatically dispersed among the municipalities based on population.
