The extremes that the current city council, along with city department heads, are going to in an attempt to put lipstick on this pig of an administration is embarrassing. The Voketz lawsuit, if settled in the manner desired by Bibbee et. al., does nothing but perpetuate a failed governing…

To summarize Decatur leadership: we have a tainted water supply, an industrial development policy that continues pursuit of chemical manufacturing facilities that are essentially unregulated by EPA & ADEM, an ordinance that is intended to punish an essential public safety function in …

Folks, it’s seriously time to consider dissolving Decatur and annexing into the city of Huntsville. How could theses objections from adjacent landowners just now become known? If this project were in Huntsville it would have been completed years ago.

Go back and look at Long’s reaction to Don Sims (WMEL water authority) public admonition to NOT drink the water, 3Ms resistance to Sims’ proposed reverse osmosis system and how the scope of the problem has slowly “dribbled” out, and one cannot be faulted for lack of confidence in our city…
