TRUSSVILLE — Three of the five Trussville City Council members on Thursday participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
After a special-called meeting and workshop, councilmen Perry Cook, Brian Plant and Anthony Montalto took the challenge outside the Trussville Police Department. Council President Buddy Choat dumped ice water on Cook, Mayor Gene Melton dumped ice water on Plant and Montalto was soaked by Councilman Alan Taylor.
Cook challenged Clay Mayor Charles Webster and the Clay City Council to do the challenge. Plant called out Center Point Mayor Tom Henderson and the Center Point City Council. Montalto called out Pinson Mayor Hoyt Sanders and the Pinson City Council.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, and encourage donations for research.
