“Best in its Class”-Council retreat reinforces that vision for Birmingham
The Birmingham City Council’s vision is clear, make this city “Best in its Class”. The council, along with Mayor William Bell, met together in Prattville to discuss every aspect of city business to help accomplish that. In anticipation of mid-year budget discussions and an estimated $7.7 million dollar increase cost for healthcare in 2016, the retreat allowed councilors to review the financial status of the city as well as plan and discuss continued growth for Birmingham. Councilors were advised by dozens of city representatives and administrators at the retreat.
