During the recent Scottsboro City Work Session, Lowell Bivens spoke to council members on behalf of Roseberry Rescue Group.

The group is a group of private citizens who formed a non- profit to preserve the Roseberry area. Bivens stated that financial backers of the group previously included the City of Scottsboro, the Jackson County Commission, the Jackson County Legislative Delegation and lakefront property owners. The 2018 project will cost approximately $180,000 and will include aquatic weed treatment beginning in mid May. Bivens stated that they were given $30,000 by the Jackson County Legislative Delegation from the TVA in Lieu of Tax funds. The group is requesting $80,000 from the City of Scottsboro. Previously, the City of Scottsboro budgeted $40,000 for this group. Bivens explained that this project needs to begin in the middle of May. City Council President Tony Wallingsford stated that the issue would be placed on the next work session. He also suggested that this might qualify for tourism funding.
A resolution to apply for HSIP funding for the intersection located at Highway 72 and County Park Road was discussed. Mayor Robin Shelton stated that he had met with property owners in the area. He stated the two primary concerns were the entrance and exits at Calvary Baptist and at McDonald’s. Council member Keith Smith voiced concern that this would possibly hurt businesses in the area and suggested that an access road be built from Red Stone to County Park Road so that every business would have the same benefit. The resolution will be further discussed in a future work session.
An agreement with Ladd Environmental for construction, engineering and inspection services for phase two of  Downtown Streetscape Project was discussed. This agreement is to oversee the project.
The 2019 TAP application resolution was discussed. This funding would be used for the walking trail at Goose Pond, in addition to funding that has already been secured.
