GRAPHIC=none The town government of Boones Mill is


in shambles after several resignations.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT The controversy centered around


whether to fire the town's police
chief.

According to chief Lynn Frith, the
tension started two weeks ago when
Mayor Patricia Hogan ordered him to
cite more speeders along Route 220.

*CG locator Boones Mill The chief said in doing so, one of the
first people he caught flying down the
highway was the mayor's husband Robert,
who is also a councilmember.

Following last night's town

Council member Sarah Eames announced
they had decided to step down.

*CG locator Lynchburg

Last night, City council voted to
start the acquisition process for the
condemned homes as part of its spot
blight program.

The Housing Authority identifies
properties that are in serious need of
repair and tries to buy them from the
owner so they can be fixed up and
resold.

If a deal can't be reached, the
next step is using eminent domain.

City leaders are concerned that a

new measure restricting eminent domain
could hurt the spot blight program.

They've written the governor asking
him to amend the language.
