FULTONDALE—The Fultondale City Council on Monday heard from a citizen concerned about the state of abandoned lots in the Glendale community.
According to Lois Roddy, the lots on each side of her and behind her property on 4th Avenue are so overgrown that it is causing her to have issues with rats and snakes.
Roddy said she sent Mayor Jim Lowery a certified letter the week before about the issue. Lowery said he already had city employees looking into the ownership of the lots and working to figure out the steps the city needs to take to ensure the lots are cleaned.
In other business, the council also:
•approved a business license for City Smoke Shop, located at 1351 Decatur Highway.
•approved an ABC license for restaurant liquor license for Shoney’s, since the restaurant has changed owners.
•approved a resolution to accept some side streets for Black Creek Station subdivision into the city. The city will then be able to repave those streets for the residents, although they will delay work on the main road or roads that will have new construction soon, until after the heavy construction traffic is finished.
•approved a resolution declaring July 7, 2019 as “Marzella Mitchell Keith Day” in honor of Keith, who will turn 101 on that day.
