4th of July - A message from Mayor Stimpson

This morning we made the decision to cancel the City's plans for a July 4 fireworks event due to concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19. Our team worked hard to develop a plan to safely conduct this annual event. I want to commend them for the extensive thought and preparation they put into the effort. However, with cases rising across Mobile County, and in consultation with health experts, we determined the risk of potential exposure was simply too great.

I want to thank the City Council for giving us the option to proceed with the event. I spoke with the council president this morning to inform him of our decision to cancel. He expressed support for our decision.

Please remember that COVID-19 remains active in our community and the virus is continuing to spread. Wear a mask, keep your hands clean and avoid large groups.
