The Mayor of Fairhope is cutting the city budget to compensate for the anticipated loss of municipal income due to COVD-19.

The staff, police, fire and other cuts came up to 2.6 million.

Does that figure sound familiar?

It is the same price for the recreation land that councilman Burrell Boone and Burrell, the three B’s, insisted on buying only to lease the same property for 9000. a year.

Absolutely no one wanted the recreation land to be located next to the airport. Burrell Boone and Brown pushed the purchase down the throats of the citizens.

Lost Opportunity, now Fairhope has to cut 2.6 million because the three B’s had a plan of their own.

Sewer projects and capital improvements may also be delayed.

Now we need 2.6 million not 9000 dollars a year for a farming lease.



… the 3 B’s,  Burrell,  Brown and  Boone, approved and purchased, 2.65 million in land for recreation, that did NOT have the approval of National Park Service.

  1. Maybe this downturn will put a halt to the out of control growth
    It’s not just Fairhope but the entire county that is run by Catalyst that must be stopped
    In this case the cure is better than the disease

    • Illuminati….

      • Yep, Illuminati. Typical Catalyst rebuttal
        You say this for the uninformed people who don’t know hoping to keep attention away from the acts of this group
        But some of us watch, see, and know what Catalyst is and see what it does
        Can you give a better response to the money flowing from the developers to vetted candidates controlled by the “campaigning group” known as Catalyst?

      • Keep say Illuminati, Catalyst operative
        You are just proving that this organization exists and does its damage

        You mean catalyst Illuminati ?
        Who put you up to posting this? Boone? Burrell? Brown? Cox, Corte? Ball? Haygood – no not him- Catalyst has disowned him because he has gone off their reservation.

    • No one wants a downturn. Just a council who will get on board with comprehensive planning. The mayor cannot do it alone.

    Ripp you know the purchase of this property was a Catalyst deal and the reasons were for personal and immediate gain rather than for future gain.
    Don’t try to apply good reasoning to catalyst greed.

    Sad that the below average intelligence in Fairhope is allowing graft and malfeasance like this. An FBI forensic examination of the tranzaction would competently reveal their crime.

    Fairhope appears doomed.

    Mister Ripp you are like a bad dream to cat list. Jack is like a pole cat and you are gonna skin him and sell his hide. He’s running scared and i cant blame him for it any bit. You have been downright mean to that man.

    Can you be a little meaner? He deserves to suffer for that shady land deal.

      I will do my best

      • Ripp I hear that you get 12,000 clicks a week to your site. If that is true then I can account for about two per day
        Keep doing what you do and we will give you the clicks to make the crooked politicians know we listen to you and tell our friends and families!
        Catalyst tried to out speak you with Baldwin Insider and Chuckie Cheese. That failed.

        • Spanish Fort Oracle | March 31, 2020 at 9:02 pm |

          Yep, Ripp, we love you. Like anonymous said we listen to you. Catalysts be on notice

    Opportunity cost.
    What you give up.
    For having criminal councilmen.
