Fairhope should now begin to see the writing on the wall. The Fairhope City Council is voting as a unit and the council president, Jack Burrell, is calling the shots. One thing that is perfectly clear…
Every ones property drains some where, fly creek, fish river, styx river, black water, the bay. So up stream folks dont have rights? These folks have done everything asked of them and more. It has nothing to do with the creek its jealousy. As far as the voter turn out it was better than the fly creekers turn out in Bay Minette. Folks rippy is sending u down the wrong path
On another note....at least one of them will run for mayor against her and that might open up their council seat.
Nothing like a bad Mayor to bring a Council together.
"That strong divide that has split Republicans in a big way. Moore supporters aren’t likely to support Strange, if Strange gets the nomination, which appears more and more unlikely. Strange supporters aren’t likely to support Moore who, quite frankly, is just unacceptable to most reasonable people.If those voters choose Jones because their awful candidate lost, we could have a major upset.
Thank you for this article! Every citizen that truly cares about Baldwin County should read this and do what we can to vote these corrupt politicians out!!! I am personally inclined to NOT vote for Anyone that currently holds office, including but not limited to Chris Elliott, Tucker Dorsey and Dane Haygood. And by the way.....how is it legal for Haygood to overturn the almost unanimous vote of the city council to NOT zone a certain property on 181 as business instead of residential? How can ONE person overturn the vote of at least 6 others? Who does he think he is, and which of his developer friends and county commissioners are going to profit from this change of zoning?
Update: Johnson resigned from Daphne yesterday and is expected to begin in Fairhope in October, according to the Fairhope Courier.
Mayor Wilson announced that Richard Johnson will become Fairhope's next Public Works Director: Johnson has been serving in that capacity for the city of Daphne since 2010.
Before that he was an engineer with Hatch, Mott and Macdonald and worked for Baldwin County in the permitting department for a time as well: Johnson has a B.S. degree in civil engineering from U.S.A. according to the mayor.
By Chip Brownlee Alabama Political Reporter A new poll released this week gives former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore a large lead over Sen. Luther Strange in this month’s primary runoff. But more surprisingly, the poll shows Democratic challenger Doug Jones within the margin of error in hypothetic...
Maybe im upset about these houses along fly creek, there polluting from run off in the bay. Why did they get to build on the creek? These so called concerned citizens evidently didnt care about the creek or bay. And why dont these concerned citizens show there face and not hide behind a few.
Yesterday, the city's planning commission gave final approval to the plan for 240 apartments along Fly Creek (behind/south of Publix), bringing an end to a nearly two-year saga that helped change the direction of city government.
That is the lying City Council we voted in to screw us, remember that in 2020 they put planning and zoning in the position of approving the site plan without a choice. Get ready folks traffic at Parker road will be a nightmare and the developer is going to come back with a connectivity plan to connect Rock Creek and Woodlands. The creek will experience further damage and the developer, Mr Speed and property owner Aurthur Corti will be long gone when it comes time to clean up the mess, we the taxpayers and residents on the creek will have to pick up the tab
I haven't seen the actual plans, but by the picture it looks like a dinky little retention pond for all that impermeable surface? I guarantee flooding and runoff into the creek, and not just during construction. Watch for it...
GREAT ! More people that could careless about our city & non property owners with kids So they will up our property/ school taxes ..
There is a huge shortage of affordable rental properties in the area for younger, baldwin-county born individuals. It is good to see this addition. The majority of you folks against any and every development in this county are old retirees who relocated here. Its bad enough that you have essentially caused gentrification; but to think you have a credible voice because you have lived here for over a year now is ridiculous.
The Courier Editor, Chuckee the lonely lover, left out one important fact about his article: Mike Turner is married to Pam Caudill who is on the Fairhope Airport Authority and a dear friend of Jack Burrell. Pam was on the board when the decisions were made about the airplane hanger leases in question, that were awarded to another Board member Ray Hixs. ...

This article is from 2014 and Alabama is not even ranked in the top three in this article. Still no one is surprised about corruption in Alabama. This is what happens when you have a one party monopoly in state politics.
Way to go Alabama! After last years National Championship loss, its nice to see us #1 at something!
The findings must be incorrect. Illinois must be in first place. There is only one Chicago.
