FAIRHOPE STATE OF THE CITY

Fairhope

Mayor Karin Wilson of Fairhope, AlabamaHope to See You Thursday for Our State of the City Expo This Thursday, 5pm, Fairhope Civic Center.

Fairhope this your chance to meet employees and see the different departments of the city. It takes around 300 employees from office staff to public works to keep the city maintained and running in top financial shape.

The Catalyst City Council will be present and I could think of a million questions but lets settle for one. First some info:

In an unusual call to action in Fairhope’s Council chambers last week, Corey Martin pleaded with the City Council to reelvaluate a proposed property purchase in the city’s historically black neighborhood. “Gentrify that area,” Martin said, noting some of the city’s earliest settlers were black but at some point in Fairhope’s history, a “disconnect” was …

The piece of land the council rejected was first choice of the State Park Board, the citizens of the community, city staff and the Mayor.

The council ordered the appraisal before citizens knew, and it is dated June 28, 2019.

This so called appraisal was highly questionable, and the brain child of councilmen Burrell, Brown and Boone.

They had made up their minds in June but strung the citizens out for months explaining, “we are only getting an appraisal”.

FAIRHOPE SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER

The citizens of Fairhope must know that they are being sold out by developers, the city council and those with appointed positions, such as municipal judge. In the mist of the Fairhope budget process…

The 3B’s then move to close on the property without any public input on the proposed property.

In December they paid the 2.65 million for the farmland.

Your tax dollars.

This money was not allocated or budgeted for recreation land.

Keep in mind they purchased the K1 center and Nix building, for over 5 million, which needs roof repairs.

The main city hall needs a new roof and recreation upgrades within the city are needed.

Millions of dollars are now not available for city infrastructure projects and these projects are now being held up for lack of budgeted funds.

MARBLE MOUTH

Fairhope’s City Council started out, day one, as being obstructionist. They have stayed the course for over 3 years and the taxpayers have paid dearly. The three new councilman aligned themselves with…

In January 2020 the City Council declared the same 2.65 million dollar property:

6. Ordinance – An Ordinance to declare that certain real property (105 Farmable Acres) of the City of Fairhope is temporarily designated surplus and not needed for public or municipal purposes in response to an offer to lease property yearly from January 1 through December 31 for one year with four one-year options.

Within 60 days of purchase the property is designated “surplus and not needed for public or municipal purposes.”
It is leased for $9000.00 a year.

This is no joke.

They have no money to develop the property???

THE QUESTION IS, WHO GOT THE “COMMISSION CHECK” BURRELL, BROWN OR BOONE ????

🚫 OR ALL THREE? 🚫

THIS DEAL STINKS!

This is a CATALYST COUNCIL and they will set their sites on the triangle property next.

This council represents CATALYST not Fairhope,. In 2020 the citizens of Fairhope should vote their sorry asses out of office.

If you don’t Fairhope will be known as 🚫 CATALYST 🚫 and the flowers will wilt.

Read the latest Freaky Friday!

There must have been a back room deal here. How can this Council get away with so much graft?
They have sold my hometown to the highest bidder

Those that use Catalyst are bad politicians

It will be interesting to see if Catalyst changes its name now that Ripp has exposed this group. It was once called Elliott, Haygood, and Stacey before it was called Catalyst. If it does change its name then what will it be called?
What makes Catalyst at its core, whatever it is called? Is it the politicians that utilize it? Is it the developers that fund it? We need to be able to identify this group because Ripp has exposed what it does which is corrupt government.
It is very likely that the people running this group will try to hide their tracks. Because of this, we need to be able to spot this group so we can call the politicians out when they hire Catalyst and sell their souls to this mafia-like group and go against the people just to get elected.
When I see that a politician uses this group, I want this politician to answer to the voters so I want to know how to spot this group whatever it is called or will be called.
