A quick glance at today’s Birmingham City Council agenda gives you the impression that it’s all about getting and moving things around. There are ordinances securing our transit authority’s operating contract (Item 10)  providing additional funds for the system (Item 6); allowing for Alagasco to get around town (Item 7); securing an incentive for the relocation of Intermark’s 110 employees to the former Rogers Trading Company building; allowing for Jim Burke Automotive to consolidate more of their dealerships downtown (Item 5). There’s even one approving plans to move forward on making it a more attractive drive down one of our streets (14th Street North – Item 15).

Of course road safety’s always important, so there are bridge inspections and other road projects included (Items 13, 14). Though also included this week are contracts that would allow for work to begin on the Fair Park Redevelopment Plan, first announced back in April (Items 11 & 12 – $8,053,000 worth). Of course, most of this will depend on how the council president’s proposal was received yesterday as well as the continued discussion (if any) about last week’s big ticket item. We’ll see shortly…
