It’s a fairly quiet agenda for our city councilors here in Birmingham today, with item 6 addressing an issue that has been getting a lot of attention recently. Last week’s City Council meeting lasted nearly seven hours, definitely giving a reason for the council president to submit a proposal moving all Council presentations and commendations to the first Council meeting of each month. It had been included in last week’s agenda but a vote was delayed.

Item 29 would approve the city sponsoring Ruffner Mountain Nature Center‘s new facility with up to $15,000. Full disclosure – I currently serve as the VP of the board, so I’m excited about this myself.

Item 5 would repeal an ordinance recently approved by the council to move funds that had been allocated for school sidewalk construction ($7,922,500 to be exact) to the Fair Park redevelopment project.

The fun starts at 9:30 a.m. on the city’s website.
