This afternoon I went to Saraland for their Chamber Of Commerce meeting. The featured speaker was Dr. Vickers, superintendent of schools. He reiterated how important the March 22, 2011 vote for maintaining the school tax was to Cities such as Saraland, Chickasaw and Satsuma. He said this was NOT a new tax and overall taxes would remain the same. In
the same line of thought, he reminded us that to count as a yes for our
city, it was important for us to vote yes on all three components of the referendum. The yes vote is worth $700,000. for the city of Chickasaw. I would also like to congratulate Saraland in selecting their new Police Chief, J.T. West.
