Posted in: General News
MOBILE, AL – On Tuesday, the Mobile City Council was presented with several proposals by the City of Mobile concerning the future of Ladd-Peebles Stadium. These include a purchase agreement that would transfer ownership of the property to the Mobile County Public School System for a nominal fee of $1, an intergovernmental agreement that would allocate up to $9 million for future maintenance and enhancements at Ladd-Peebles, and a contract for necessary field repairs to ensure safe hosting of football games in the Fall. A notable aspect of the intergovernmental agreement is that the City will retain the facility's use for hosting popular HBCU games.
Citywide improvements continue as a contract with Chris Brewer Contracting, Inc. for $557,555.00 was authorized for sidewalk installation in the Wolf Ridge/Beau Terra area. A $3.8M contract with John G. Walton Construction Co., Inc. using 2022 PAYGO Resurfacing funds for road repairs in Districts 4,5, 6 and 7 was also submitted for authorization and is set to be voted on next week.
On July 18, residents in four areas of unincorporated territory will vote on whether they want to become part of the city. To participate, individuals must be registered voters who have resided in the proposed areas for a minimum of three months prior to the election. Absentee ballots will be provided by the probate court. The last day to submit a mail-in absentee ballot application for this election is July 11, while the deadline for in-person absentee ballot applications is July 13. Residents can confirm whether they live in one of the four areas here: https://www.cityofmobile.org/annexation/.
