Public hearings included Sweet Home Food Bar’s request to serve alcohol. The request was approved, and an alcohol license was awarded.
The issue of the bid for the City of Tuscaloosa Seasonal Ice Rink was also revisited.
The Council considered the resolution, awarding a temporary contract to the chosen bidder. Ice Rink Events won the conditional award after offering the bid of $86,600. Ice Rink Events will further explore contractual matters.
The General Fund Budget for the 2015 fiscal year was also adopted with unanimous consent.
Walter Maddox also commended Councilwoman Cynthia Almond on assembling the budget as her first year as Finance Committee Chair.
“I want to thank Mrs. Almond for all her work on the budget,” said Maddox.
