At the regular meeting held on July 5th 2022, the Haleyville City Council approved a resolution in support of improvements to the Haleyville Airport.
The council approved a bid submitted by Wiregrass Construction Company, Inc. for resurfacing the runway at Posey Field. Wiregrass submitted the only bid, totaling $2,552,318.25 which will be funded in part by the Alabama Department of Transportation and through applying for a Federal Aviation Administration grant. The council approved a separate resolution to apply for that FAA grant and made the bid acceptance contingent on the grant’s approval.
In other business, the council approved the purchase of a garbage truck from Sansom for $193,425.00, as well as purchasing a Report It program for $1,200. The council allocated $4,000 to the Downtown Park Fund to be used for entertainment, and appointed five members to the Heart of Haleyville Park Committee for a one year term. Those appointed to the park committee are Katie Tidwell, Brandon Norris, Will Walker, Holly Sutherland, and Jade Bice.
George Blue Russell was absent from the meeting with Mayor Ken Sunseri and other council members present.
