Residency? No law, but plenty of locals for boards

Jane Akin Keltner, retired City Clerk writes
I do not think there is an ordinance against out of county appointments, but it makes common sense not to do so when there are good local people who would serve. Jane Akin Keltner

Rickie Williams asks: About hotel? About insurance tax

Rickie Williams writes:
Below is a copy of an article from your site from approximately one year ago. (Here's a link to the article he sent: Adair Fiscal Court Meeting April 13, 2010 report)

I haven't heard a thing about it since.

I have two questions...one related to the article...one not...:
  1. What is the status of the new Hotel project at/near Holladay Place?
  2. To my knowledge, every insurance policy in Columbia city limits is charged an extra tax of something around 11 to 11.5%. What becomes of those tax dollars? One physician told me he moved from the city limits to escape the tax...another moved out of the area altogether. Should this tax be reconsidered? Or is having it in place keeping some other tax from increasing?
s/Rickie Williams
Editor comments Ricky Williams: You're right: it has been very quiet on the new hotel/motel, in fact I hear more about the reopening of the Wilmore Hotel in Gradyville and the possibility of Miss Victoria's Boarding House, Bread, Bed and Breakfast House, Tourist Home, and Home Away from Home for Families of Refinement than about the Hotel, but I haven't lost faith that it will come - maybe not as soon as Junior Stotts gets his section of the Chattanooga Highway complete, but soon.

As for the Insurance Tax. The insurance tax in Columbia is a great stealth tax which is extracted so painlessly no one really knows anyone has been in their pocket unless they occasionally audit their bank statement.
