During the recent Scottsboro City Council meeting, a budget amendment for the Street Department in the amount of $65,984 was approved. 

Council member Patrick Stewart made the motion to approve the budget amendment that has been discussed at several work sessions.  Council member Keith Smith questioned the exact repairs. Council President Tony Wallingsford explained they were for the dozer and badger. Stewart requested clarification on exactly how this issue was handled. Scottsboro City Attorney Stephen Kennamer stated, “It is obvious, I think everyone acknowledges that normal processes were not followed in the dozer repair or getting the badger repaired. We are in a situation where the dozer has been repaired.  Repairs have been completed. Though the due process that is normally supposed to be followed was not.  So we are in a situation where the dozer repair company can sue the mayor, can sue the city, can sue whoever took the equipment to them and directed them to fix it, under a theory called quantum merit.” He went on to state, that by paying the bills, he did not feel that the council would be in violation of any laws. Although the repairs were not approved by the City Council prior to being performed, the Council voted to pay the bills for the repairs.
Council members also approved an agreement with Jackson County for the lease of voting machines. Two reappointments were made to the Industrial Development Board. Gail Moore  and Stewart Dawson were each reappointed.
