Scottsboro City Council members voted to approve the budget for paving at the last council meeting held on September 23, 2019.

The paving will be financed with the current $4.5 million issue and will cover the paving of Parks, Beech, Forest, David, Brown and two service roads on Highway 72. The total cost will be $285,939, of which the entirety of the funding was approved and passed by Council.
Several bids were also approved. Ander’s Pool Company out of Huntsville was awarded the bid for pool chemicals. The McPherson Company was awarded the oil bid. P&C Construction Incorporated was also awarded the bid for the recycling facility remodeling and additions. The bid review committee recommended the bid for Rec-Com cleaning be rejected, and Council approved the rejection. The resolution to award the fuel bid to Valley Oil Company was tabled pending further investigation and discussion before approval.
A budget amendment for the purchase of a new truck for the Vehicle Maintenance Department was approved, allowing the city to search for said vehicle. Three signatures will be needed for the PO, with the amount not exceeding $50,000.The council confirmed the set amount which will be coming out of surplus sales tax, allowing that any leftover amount from the purchase will go back into the fund.
Another budget amendment was also approved for the Solid Waste Department, designating $50,000 to be set aside out of sales tax to fund the repair on the compactor at the bailer facility.
Scottsboro Police Chief Ralph Dawe presented a resolution to allow for slight word/term changes in job descriptions for the department. This would allow the SPD to promote the most qualified candidates using internal and external resources, reach out to outside agencies to bring in retired troopers or county personnel who may wish to come to the SPD. Another term change would be from Scottsboro Police Department Officer to Law Enforcement Officer, opening up more options. This was approved and passed by the council.
The council announced appointments. Nita Tolliver was appointed to the Downtown Redevelopment Authority Board and Roger Widgeon, Debbie Mathis and Ted Crona were re-appointed to the Zoning Adjustment Board. Scottsboro City Mayor Robin Shelton and council members presented a proclamation and key to the city to Roy Light, General Manager of Scottsboro WSG in recognition of his 30+ years of services to the city of Scottsboro in a leadership position.
Council then went into executive session with Scottsboro Municipal Court Magistrate Caroline Starr. City Attorney Stephen Kennamer stated Council would be entering into executive session due to potential threatening or pending litigation issues. Kennamer confirmed no votes were taken as it was a matters call only.
