Town Clerk Wendy Kelly said the actual date for distribution of the materials will be announced, or interested parties may call Town Hall at 256-249-9971.
The mayor also reported that the town’s lawyer recommended giving a man 45 additional days to move out of an apartment he built inside an auto repair shop, which is not zoned for a residence. Wes Laughridge appealed to the council last month to let him continue to live there, but White said Laughridge will be asked to move.
Also Tuesday, the council approved spending $1,175 to repair the windshield on a fire truck that cracked under intense heat from a fire when the wind shifted. It was noted that the truck was parked an appropriate distance from the fire, and the wind shift occurred suddenly.
