TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council met in regular session on Tuesday night and accepted the low bid for a new traffic signal for U.S. Highway 11 and Vann Road.
The low bid was awarded to Stone and Sons Electric Contractors for $129,300.
“There are not many things we do that everybody agrees on,” Councilman Alan Taylor said. “But I think everybody agrees on this because that road is a nightmare to get on Highway 11.”
The council also voted to amend and replace the city’s alcohol ordinance. Much of the amendment was for the purpose of cleaning up the language, but significant changes are also found in the new ordinance.
The city ordinance now says any business with a local alcohol license must maintain the state alcohol license in good standing, as well. Alcohol taxes must be paid by the 20th of each month or the business risks have their license suspended or canceled.
If the alcohol license is suspended, the business must remove all alcohol from view. Enforcement of the new code falls to the Trussville Police Code Enforcement Officer. That position is currently held by Chuck Bradford.
