Haleyville City Hall is now temporarily located at the Neighborhood Facilities Building (NFB) until construction of the new city hall can be completed. Debra Hood, acting City Clerk, wrote her own book to cover both moves. The first move was to the NFB, then another move to the permeant location in the new facility. The book covers many details of the moves which may be overlooked. Debra said she got the idea of compiling a set of directions and "want list" from Mayor Ken Sunseri, who has written operational plans for the city.
Shortly after becoming mayor for the first time 6 years ago, Mayor Sunseri put together a written Emergency Action Plan for the city. This set of plans has been utilized on more than one occasion to make sure each of the city departments and employees know what to do and who to contact in case of an emergency such as weather related disasters.
Debra's Relocation Plans has a list of "to do" items for the new building, including small items such as purchasing signage for the mayor's office door to the restroom doors. Debra pointed out it's the little items which sometimes get overlook. The book functions as a checklist to insure the moves go as smoothly as possible.
The Haleyville Police dispatch and city court are also located and operating temporarily from the Neighborhood Facilities Building until the final move to the new city hall.
