BIRMINGHAM, AL– Congrats are in order for Birmingham City Councilor Kim Rafferty! Councilor Rafferty has been reappointed to the Committee on Transportation, Public Safety and Communication. The TPSC Committee reviews and develops policy on transportation programs and their revenue sources and allocations. This committee is also responsible for reviewing public works programs, particularly those related to infrastructure development.

“I am honored that I have been reappointed to serve on a committee that continuously makes an effort to improve transportation, public safety and communication statewide,” Councilor Rafferty said. “The work for this committee has been laid out in great detail, and I am eager to get to start working on those tasks with my colleagues at the state level.”

The Alabama League of Municipalities has five policy committees composed of municipal officials representing cities and towns of all sizes from the state’s seven Congressional districts. The five committees are: Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations; Energy, Environment and Natural Resources; Community and Economic Development; Human Development; and Transportation, Public Safety and Communication. The collective work of the five committees can be found on the League’s website at www.alalm.org as a set of Proposed Policies and Goals for 2015. This statement will serve as a blueprint to guide the League’s efforts in the Alabama Legislature and in Congress on behalf of its more than 440 member municipalities.
