Hollow Rock to sue couple over back taxes

The town of Hollow Rock is making progress in collecting back taxes members of the mayor and board of aldermen were advised at the Aug. 18 board meeting by town attorney Butch Maddox.

“A few months ago I started working on the taxes back to 2011,” he said. “Now I’m up to 2017 collecting them.”
However, there is one piece of property at 378 Main Street with property taxes from 2016 that hasn’t been paid. The owners are William B. and Sharon Coleman Hanceville, Alabama on which $253.66 was owed at Maddox’s last check in June. By now the amount will be $300 plus with the court costs added to it, he noted.

Maddox said a certified letter had been sent to the couple on the matter and that Sharon Coleman had promised to pay the amount, but never had.

In further information on the property, the attorney said that Brian Booth has a mortgage on the property and that city and county property taxes are also owed for the years 2017-2019.

Upon the attorney’s advise, board members voted to allow the couple to be sued for the payment of the taxes.

Several other announcements were made during the meeting.

Vice Mayor Curt Lumley asked for prayers for fellow fire department and Carroll County Rescue member Leon Dillingham who is in Jackson-Madison County General Hospital with COVID-19.   

It was mentioned during the meeting there had been a situation at the water plant as lightning had struck the generator.  

The old bank building in downtown Hollow Rock is in the process of being torn down.

Board member Bobby Brotherton, who is also the fire chief, advised that a bike run to benefit a Christmas gift fund for children is being planned for Sept. 5. Ribeye sandwiches will be sold on that day at the fire department as well.

A card of thanks was read by Mayor Rob Woods from First Baptist Church of Bruceton in appreciation for the town providing fire department equipment for the children to observe during Vacation Bible School.

Absent from the board was alderman Michael Smith.

In other matters, Brotherton submitted a written report on the happenings of the fire department for July.

The department provided equipment at birthday parties on July 9 and 18. Pools were filled at 445 Buena Vista Rd. and Rowland Mill Rd. There was no report of any fires during July.
