Fultondale council approves matching funds for ClasTran

FULTONDALE — The Fultondale City Council on Monday approved local matching funds in the amount of $1,343.46 for ClasTran for the fiscal year Oct. 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2014.

Council member Darrell Hubbert said ClasTran is important because many Fultondale citizens use the service to go to the doctor and to other appointments.

In other business, the council authorized Mayor Jim Lowery to enter into a renewal agreement with the Jefferson County Office of Senior Citizen Services for the Fultondale and Mt. Olive senior programs for the fiscal year Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2014.

Lowery said the city serves as an agency for the Mt. Olive senior center to receive county funds, because Mt. Olive is not a municipality. He added that the Mt. Olive center does not receive funds directly from the city of Fultondale.

The city council also heard from Kara Kennedy, who announced:

  • an upcoming play sponsored by the Fultondale Arts Council. The council will present “It’s a Wonderful Life: Live Radio Play” Dec. 5-8 at Fultondale City Hall
  • the Friends of the Fultondale Bark Park group is still taking applications for booths at the Barking at the Moon festival, which is Oct. 27, 12-5 p.m., at the Fultondale Bark Park
  • the Fultondale Fresh Market, which was previously meeting at Black Creek Park, is now meeting at the Ashley Furniture parking lot on Wednesdays, 2-6 p.m., under new management. For more information, email
