Joint access easement. 00:05:41
Use agreement between the city and the party that's buying the lot that's next to the Hopkins building at the industrial park. 00:05:44
Airport. 00:05:53
Tom, will you remind people especially that maybe listening or watching at home about? 00:05:55
When it says amending, we want to make sure people don't get the wrong impression about amending the one time retention bonus. 00:06:00
For the police officers, OK, I'm going to have to defer to Mr. Holmes on that one. 00:06:08
Because I did not prepare. 00:06:15
Would I have to sign it by? I believe it was November 1st. 00:06:20
OK. That's all it is. We just want to make sure people know that we're not taking anything away from them. Is there anybody who's 00:06:23
not eligible? Apparently that's in phases or just our department will have one month after they complete phases? 00:06:28
That's good. 00:06:34
And I know of 1 item for executive session. 00:06:36
Any questions for Mr. Bobbitt? 00:06:41
All right, Brandon, you go. 00:06:44
There he is. 00:06:51
OK, so we've got two boards to go over today. The first one is going to be Zoning Board of Adjustments. You guys will all have a 00:06:52
list of all the applicants that we received as well as all of their resumes. This is one of the ones that we advertise and then 00:06:58
extended the deadline until yesterday afternoon. So I wanted you guys to take a look at that and kind of see if you wanted to 00:07:04
choose from the names that are in front of you or if you needed a little bit more time. 00:07:10
OK, what I have asked is that this closed yesterday at 5:00. 00:07:18
And and I'm going to ask that we not add any more names but give me two weeks because I'd like to and any council members that 00:07:24
would like to join me. ZBA is extremely important in these two spots are they affect all of our districts. 00:07:34
In so many ways, especially with the increase of. 00:07:45
I know you had a lot 7 that last night, Cassius with short term rentals and then I think. But anyway, so I would like to have the 00:07:50
time to to speak with each one of them individually and I'll let each of you know. If you'd like to join me, I'd love that too. 00:07:58
Something that I would like to do but no more. 00:08:08
It's no more applicants. I would like to move forward with TTS. This is a reminder that you have three spots that you need to fill 00:08:11
for CBA, two regular and one supernumerary, and you guys have to choose those positions before we put them on the ordinance. 00:08:18
OK, who's a supernumer? 00:08:25
Now let me ask you. 00:08:29
We've got Mr. Stewart and Mr. Rollins correct. There's a 2 regulars. They're regulars. Can we can? Is this an appropriate time if 00:08:33
we wanted to? 00:08:38
To put a supernumerary as. 00:08:44
That would be completely up to you guys. Yes. OK. That's something might want to consider and I will certainly speak that they 00:08:47
each one of these. 00:08:50
About that because right now. 00:08:54
Tim. 00:08:56
I believe so, yes. And Joseph Eatman are the two super numerous and Mary Catherine is the third. 00:08:58
OK. 00:09:06
And being surprising, the Z. 00:09:07
Rarely has everybody there. 00:09:10
I think I can remember a meeting that there weren't supernumeraries. 00:09:12
So. 00:09:16
I. 00:09:18
I had Lester Edwards in my district years ago, and he was almost. 00:09:19
At every meeting because I always needed a supernumerary. 00:09:23
OK. All right. Well, good. Thank you for that. 00:09:27
TTSC or visit Tuscaloosa's. 00:09:33
I heard from Raven. 00:09:38
Her. What her choices were in an e-mail, but anybody like. 00:09:41
Bring. 00:09:45
I want to see him. 00:09:47
I had. 00:09:51
Lawan, Hutchinson and. 00:09:53
And I am. I am putting out there Lawan Hutchinson as well, Cassius and Doug Killow. 00:09:58
As the. 00:10:04
And the reasons I know Coach Connor has reached out about Lawan Lawan. 00:10:07
Has amazing sports background. He's in head of the Sports Management program, University of W Alabama. 00:10:13
And very involved with athletics and very knowledgeable. He's on their foundation board now. 00:10:19
Doug Kill Oh, something that they desperately need. 00:10:25
Got quite a marketing resume and he's currently Marketing Director for Maccabee Construction. 00:10:29
Agree with cashless on, low on and then Doug. 00:10:39
Anyone. 00:10:45
Everybody good with that? 00:10:48
Go ahead, no, but we not need to know if there is a consensus to put on the agenda. 00:10:51
I'm good, baby. I'm fine. 00:10:58
I don't know. I know of both these papers. I think they'd be fine. OK. Mr. Wilson. Councillor Wilson, Yes. 00:11:00
My person that. 00:11:08
And advocated for that was all that last time was she heard and we talked about shave. 00:11:10
And I think, weren't there going to be some? 00:11:16
Positions that were going to come available for sports and tourism. 00:11:19
That's what these. 00:11:23
They they themselves have another two or three coming up. Maybe you got the one coming right and we've got 2. 00:11:26
But now I'm on what you. 00:11:36
Yeah, We said the opportunities were certainly that would be there. 00:11:40
Umm. 00:11:45
I spoke with you about 1 addition that now I'm going to speak to Miss Bird to myself about the CB. 00:11:46
And also want to tell her about an opportunity, possibly with another board, that I think she'd. 00:11:52
Alright. 00:11:57
And tourism, so we. 00:12:00
Consensus to go forward on the agenda with Mr. Hutchinson. 00:12:04
And Mr. Killer. OK, so I'll have that ordinance for next week, OK. 00:12:08
That's all. All right. Thank you, Brandy. Mayor, we'll go back to you now. I'm good and I apologize for being late. OK. 00:12:14
All right. Did you win your football game tonight? So I may have to leave a little bit? A little bit? 00:12:26
Well, flight, we got another flight football. 00:12:35
See what happens. 00:12:41
All right. 00:12:42
Project finance, public safety and then the Council. 00:12:44
Strategic Review Task Force will meet Friday, November 3rd and I believe that's Mr. Fail and Miss Howard. 00:12:49
Council And you, the Miss Busby? 00:12:57
It's the 2:00. 00:13:01
Friday, November 3rd. 00:13:04
4:00 we've had it sess. 00:13:08
And. 00:13:14
Anybody bring me up to date? I think you all knew why I couldn't meet with the city school board last night. Is anything came out 00:13:17
of that, that that? 00:13:22
They just were warning about the special elections, that what it's basically about. 00:13:27
That would like council set the date for the OR set the election for the referendum, pass a resolution affirming that we would set 00:13:32
the election for the referendum and then notify the legislative delegation and such. Ultimately, it'll take the act of the 00:13:39
delegation to set the referendum. When does the delegation meet again? 00:13:45
I don't know. Miss Allman is chairperson of the. 00:13:53
You know, but I'm not certain how often they meet or if they have a regular meeting schedule. It might be something we can ask Mr. 00:13:57
England. 00:14:00
Feel like we're getting pushed a little bit. 00:14:06
When a local bill gets approved. 00:14:10
Is there a time limit? 00:14:13
Is it? Is it good to the next session? 00:14:15
I mean, like we're an election. I mean, I I was curious about that if the local bill passed. 00:14:18
I don't know and that's why I asked. 00:14:23
Brandy and Scott, to really jump into this now begin working with the board and their attorney. 00:14:26
Since this is new ground for all of us. 00:14:33
We're going to be learning a lot together. 00:14:37
Hopefully we'll have some questions for next week. 00:14:42
I sent y'all an update a little while ago. They're they're now looking at November 7th, which means to have a, you know, a vote on 00:14:46
the resolution that they gave you a copy of last night. 00:14:52
And so if you want to set that on any Council committee, just notify us. I think they would want to be here. 00:15:00
We're certainly going to do as much as we can over the next week. 00:15:06
To give as many questions answered. 00:15:10
Is there any legal committee? 00:15:14
We'll go with that. Go through admin, committ. 00:15:17
Look, that's what we're talking about. Which committee is 1/5. 00:15:21
We don't. The admin doesn't meet next. 00:15:25
Can we call the special meet or we can put it? 00:15:29
You can do that, yeah. You just put on projects, Yeah, anywhere you want. 00:15:32
Why don't we look at finance? It tends to have left right now. Oh yeah, that's Ronnie involved. 00:15:38
But what are the possibilities of it being piggybacking with another election? 00:15:47
You can't do it with the state. 00:15:53
And it will have to clear and miss. Johnson did a good job of explaining this last night to all of us. 00:15:55
The March 3rd primary of 20. 00:16:02
Really eliminates March and April from being able to use. 00:16:06
Machine. So if you would probably have to look at if the board needs to have an election before the November general election. 00:16:10
They'll probably have to look at doing it in June, July, August. 00:16:19
Yeah, September's running and really late in my opinion. 00:16:24
Into the general election coming. 00:16:27
24 and the city has to pay for. 00:16:31
That's what the board indicated last night. I assume that will be part of their review. Doctor Dairy indicated they're doing that 00:16:33
review. 00:16:38
Scott and his team will do that review on that side of who's responsible for paying the cost. 00:16:43
I believe the County Commission paid for the cost of the last election referendum. 00:16:50
So I would anticipate it's probably because the cost will probably have to be more out of us if that's the case. 00:16:55
I remember. 00:17:02
Which one was a nightmare because you had to like in? 00:17:04
My district, for example, people had to vote. 00:17:08
And Arc. 00:17:10
And then Peterson? 00:17:12
Yeah. 00:17:15
There's a yeah, most people that live on Hwy. 216 voting state elections in Peterson. 00:17:17
And I think it was the state election then and then people were coming to Arcadia Elementary to vote for. 00:17:24
The. 00:17:29
And it was not good. 00:17:31
It's hard enough to get people to vote one in one place, much less. 00:17:36
And I don't. 00:17:39
I don't think that would be. Making people go to polling places would be confusing. 00:17:40
That's why the board probably again, all I can take it at face value from the conversations last night. 00:17:47
I think the June, July. 00:17:54
Maybe September would have to be the time frame. 00:17:56
Host. 00:18:00
But if you'll let me know, then I'll let Doctor Daria know and also. 00:18:03
We'll do our best to have as many questions answered, and certainly they will. 00:18:08
I would envision they would have their board, attorney and whoever else they. 00:18:13
They're using here to advise. 00:18:17
Councillor Busby, do you have any thoughts about when you can put it on your Finance Committee? 00:18:20
First half of November is we've got. 00:18:26
I think the first half of November will be good. 00:18:32
Is it? We got it next week. 00:18:36
They're they're requesting November. 00:18:38
They're requesting a November 7th. 00:18:42
I, you know, again, they, I don't, I don't have an objection to the seventh thing. I mean this, this is as we reviewed last night. 00:18:45
This vote is on whether or not to allow. 00:18:54
The voters to vote on it, I don't think. 00:18:58
This vote is on. Whether the the committee vote and ultimately the council vote is on, whether to allow the Tuscaloosa voters to 00:19:03
vote on it or not, I don't anticipate. 00:19:08
A bloodbath over the central issue. We might get nitpicky over the 100 grand later down the road, but we can. You know, there's. 00:19:15
There's different cups that can be moved around there. 00:19:24
And the big thing? 00:19:30
People would. 00:19:32
Since we voted, yes, people thought all the City Council all wants. 00:19:34
Is voting yes on Sunday alcohol sales and that wasn't the case at all. 00:19:38
We were voting on giving the. 00:19:41
The opportunity to vote on Sunday alcohol sales, that's the same thing. And I think making it clear so that the people will 00:19:44
understand imperative exactly that we're not voting for the tax itself. 00:19:49
What is the local delegation? 00:19:57
Because we do need to answer that, because the city school board is asking for this increase. 00:20:03
They're unanimous on that. I would think they would consider that but. 00:20:10
That's the bigger question. So you're looking at November 7th. 00:20:14
For the they, they would like a council. 00:20:18
Last night they the indication was the 21st. 00:20:21
Today, based off some information that Doctor Gary received from his legal counsel, they actually believe they may need it on the 00:20:26
set I'm trying to get clarity on. 00:20:31
There may be a two week public requirement for. 00:20:38
And so I don't know if it means that means on the 7th it's set for a public hearing and then we vote on it on the 21st. 00:20:43
We're trying to understand that and so we may have some more clarity in the, you know, this is an hour ago the conversation. 00:20:52
So I think we'll get a little bit more clarity moving forward and and that would make sense. There are things we do at times where 00:21:00
we introduce. 00:21:03
At the Council level. 00:21:07
We come back later. 00:21:09
Adopted and we don't meet on the 14th, don't meet on the 14th and the 20th, and we don't meet on the 28th. 00:21:11
So that it would have to be on the 21st. 00:21:18
Veteran's day and then after Thanksgiving. 00:21:25
So then, so we really would need to be on finance next Tuesday. 00:21:30
Next Tuesday we've got Just Projects and Finance, right? But we've got Project Gilmore. So do you want it on Projects? 00:21:36
Now. 00:21:46
What else other than that big incentive proposal? 00:21:48
There's nothing else. No, that's fine. Again, I don't. 00:21:51
I may be off course. 00:21:55
I don't see a lot of contentiousness over the issue. There's some some things to straighten out after the fact, maybe. 00:21:59
I mean, I'm going to vote yes because people should have the right to vote for it or vote against it. 00:22:08
Oh yeah, I'm fine with it on the 7th. 00:22:18
I'm never against people having to drive the boat, that's for sure. 00:22:21
OK. 00:22:25
That. 00:22:30
Depends on what we're. 00:22:31
No, I'll always let people let the people vote. Let the people vote. 00:22:33
That they'll make the Dec. 00:22:37
But don't There was a legislator years ago. 00:22:40
Tried. 00:22:43
Stop us from giving the right to vote. Remember that about alcohol sales. 00:22:45
I said, You know, why are you? 00:22:50
Why would you not want somebody to vote? They voted for you. 00:22:52
So why would you not want them to have opportunity to vote for something else, you know? 00:22:56
Everybody's different, so. 00:23:02
Hey, I will say just to pass on to your constituents. 00:23:07
Burlington announced today that they. 00:23:12
So they'll be up and running about before the holidays and they are hiring. 00:23:18
And I spoke with the pop stroke people yesterday. 00:23:23
They text me and said they're going to send me more information. They're hiring. 00:23:28
So if you know anybody that's looking for jobs with the Tiger Woods group and with Burlington. 00:23:32
I'll be getting the information to pass on to you. 00:23:37
And they and also pop stroke tell me they will be open before the end of the year. 00:23:40
So we'll see. I hope so. That'd be great. Merry Christmas. I just just lay awake at night. I know I can't wait to be there, but 00:23:45
that's out there. My putter. 00:23:50
Hey. 00:23:56
I got an extra 1 if you need, OK, we've got executive session, we need to go and is there a motion to to go into the executive 00:23:57

Joint access easement. 00:05:41
Use agreement between the city and the party that's buying the lot that's next to the Hopkins building at the industrial park. 00:05:44
Airport. 00:05:53
Tom, will you remind people especially that maybe listening or watching at home about? 00:05:55
When it says amending, we want to make sure people don't get the wrong impression about amending the one time retention bonus. 00:06:00
For the police officers, OK, I'm going to have to defer to Mr. Holmes on that one. 00:06:08
Because I did not prepare. 00:06:15
Would I have to sign it by? I believe it was November 1st. 00:06:20
OK. That's all it is. We just want to make sure people know that we're not taking anything away from them. Is there anybody who's 00:06:23
not eligible? Apparently that's in phases or just our department will have one month after they complete phases? 00:06:28
That's good. 00:06:34
And I know of 1 item for executive session. 00:06:36
Any questions for Mr. Bobbitt? 00:06:41
All right, Brandon, you go. 00:06:44
There he is. 00:06:51
OK, so we've got two boards to go over today. The first one is going to be Zoning Board of Adjustments. You guys will all have a 00:06:52
list of all the applicants that we received as well as all of their resumes. This is one of the ones that we advertise and then 00:06:58
extended the deadline until yesterday afternoon. So I wanted you guys to take a look at that and kind of see if you wanted to 00:07:04
choose from the names that are in front of you or if you needed a little bit more time. 00:07:10
OK, what I have asked is that this closed yesterday at 5:00. 00:07:18
And and I'm going to ask that we not add any more names but give me two weeks because I'd like to and any council members that 00:07:24
would like to join me. ZBA is extremely important in these two spots are they affect all of our districts. 00:07:34
In so many ways, especially with the increase of. 00:07:45
I know you had a lot 7 that last night, Cassius with short term rentals and then I think. But anyway, so I would like to have the 00:07:50
time to to speak with each one of them individually and I'll let each of you know. If you'd like to join me, I'd love that too. 00:07:58
Something that I would like to do but no more. 00:08:08
It's no more applicants. I would like to move forward with TTS. This is a reminder that you have three spots that you need to fill 00:08:11
for CBA, two regular and one supernumerary, and you guys have to choose those positions before we put them on the ordinance. 00:08:18
OK, who's a supernumer? 00:08:25
Now let me ask you. 00:08:29
We've got Mr. Stewart and Mr. Rollins correct. There's a 2 regulars. They're regulars. Can we can? Is this an appropriate time if 00:08:33
we wanted to? 00:08:38
To put a supernumerary as. 00:08:44
That would be completely up to you guys. Yes. OK. That's something might want to consider and I will certainly speak that they 00:08:47
each one of these. 00:08:50
About that because right now. 00:08:54
Tim. 00:08:56
I believe so, yes. And Joseph Eatman are the two super numerous and Mary Catherine is the third. 00:08:58
OK. 00:09:06
And being surprising, the Z. 00:09:07
Rarely has everybody there. 00:09:10
I think I can remember a meeting that there weren't supernumeraries. 00:09:12
So. 00:09:16
I. 00:09:18
I had Lester Edwards in my district years ago, and he was almost. 00:09:19
At every meeting because I always needed a supernumerary. 00:09:23
OK. All right. Well, good. Thank you for that. 00:09:27
TTSC or visit Tuscaloosa's. 00:09:33
I heard from Raven. 00:09:38
Her. What her choices were in an e-mail, but anybody like. 00:09:41
Bring. 00:09:45
I want to see him. 00:09:47
I had. 00:09:51
Lawan, Hutchinson and. 00:09:53
And I am. I am putting out there Lawan Hutchinson as well, Cassius and Doug Killow. 00:09:58
As the. 00:10:04
And the reasons I know Coach Connor has reached out about Lawan Lawan. 00:10:07
Has amazing sports background. He's in head of the Sports Management program, University of W Alabama. 00:10:13
And very involved with athletics and very knowledgeable. He's on their foundation board now. 00:10:19
Doug Kill Oh, something that they desperately need. 00:10:25
Got quite a marketing resume and he's currently Marketing Director for Maccabee Construction. 00:10:29
Agree with cashless on, low on and then Doug. 00:10:39
Anyone. 00:10:45
Everybody good with that? 00:10:48
Go ahead, no, but we not need to know if there is a consensus to put on the agenda. 00:10:51
I'm good, baby. I'm fine. 00:10:58
I don't know. I know of both these papers. I think they'd be fine. OK. Mr. Wilson. Councillor Wilson, Yes. 00:11:00
My person that. 00:11:08
And advocated for that was all that last time was she heard and we talked about shave. 00:11:10
And I think, weren't there going to be some? 00:11:16
Positions that were going to come available for sports and tourism. 00:11:19
That's what these. 00:11:23
They they themselves have another two or three coming up. Maybe you got the one coming right and we've got 2. 00:11:26
But now I'm on what you. 00:11:36
Yeah, We said the opportunities were certainly that would be there. 00:11:40
Umm. 00:11:45
I spoke with you about 1 addition that now I'm going to speak to Miss Bird to myself about the CB. 00:11:46
And also want to tell her about an opportunity, possibly with another board, that I think she'd. 00:11:52
Alright. 00:11:57
And tourism, so we. 00:12:00
Consensus to go forward on the agenda with Mr. Hutchinson. 00:12:04
And Mr. Killer. OK, so I'll have that ordinance for next week, OK. 00:12:08
That's all. All right. Thank you, Brandy. Mayor, we'll go back to you now. I'm good and I apologize for being late. OK. 00:12:14
All right. Did you win your football game tonight? So I may have to leave a little bit? A little bit? 00:12:26
Well, flight, we got another flight football. 00:12:35
See what happens. 00:12:41
All right. 00:12:42
Project finance, public safety and then the Council. 00:12:44
Strategic Review Task Force will meet Friday, November 3rd and I believe that's Mr. Fail and Miss Howard. 00:12:49
Council And you, the Miss Busby? 00:12:57
It's the 2:00. 00:13:01
Friday, November 3rd. 00:13:04
4:00 we've had it sess. 00:13:08
And. 00:13:14
Anybody bring me up to date? I think you all knew why I couldn't meet with the city school board last night. Is anything came out 00:13:17
of that, that that? 00:13:22
They just were warning about the special elections, that what it's basically about. 00:13:27
That would like council set the date for the OR set the election for the referendum, pass a resolution affirming that we would set 00:13:32
the election for the referendum and then notify the legislative delegation and such. Ultimately, it'll take the act of the 00:13:39
delegation to set the referendum. When does the delegation meet again? 00:13:45
I don't know. Miss Allman is chairperson of the. 00:13:53
You know, but I'm not certain how often they meet or if they have a regular meeting schedule. It might be something we can ask Mr. 00:13:57
England. 00:14:00
Feel like we're getting pushed a little bit. 00:14:06
When a local bill gets approved. 00:14:10
Is there a time limit? 00:14:13
Is it? Is it good to the next session? 00:14:15
I mean, like we're an election. I mean, I I was curious about that if the local bill passed. 00:14:18
I don't know and that's why I asked. 00:14:23
Brandy and Scott, to really jump into this now begin working with the board and their attorney. 00:14:26
Since this is new ground for all of us. 00:14:33
We're going to be learning a lot together. 00:14:37
Hopefully we'll have some questions for next week. 00:14:42
I sent y'all an update a little while ago. They're they're now looking at November 7th, which means to have a, you know, a vote on 00:14:46
the resolution that they gave you a copy of last night. 00:14:52
And so if you want to set that on any Council committee, just notify us. I think they would want to be here. 00:15:00
We're certainly going to do as much as we can over the next week. 00:15:06
To give as many questions answered. 00:15:10
Is there any legal committee? 00:15:14
We'll go with that. Go through admin, committ. 00:15:17
Look, that's what we're talking about. Which committee is 1/5. 00:15:21
We don't. The admin doesn't meet next. 00:15:25
Can we call the special meet or we can put it? 00:15:29
You can do that, yeah. You just put on projects, Yeah, anywhere you want. 00:15:32
Why don't we look at finance? It tends to have left right now. Oh yeah, that's Ronnie involved. 00:15:38
But what are the possibilities of it being piggybacking with another election? 00:15:47
You can't do it with the state. 00:15:53
And it will have to clear and miss. Johnson did a good job of explaining this last night to all of us. 00:15:55
The March 3rd primary of 20. 00:16:02
Really eliminates March and April from being able to use. 00:16:06
Machine. So if you would probably have to look at if the board needs to have an election before the November general election. 00:16:10
They'll probably have to look at doing it in June, July, August. 00:16:19
Yeah, September's running and really late in my opinion. 00:16:24
Into the general election coming. 00:16:27
24 and the city has to pay for. 00:16:31
That's what the board indicated last night. I assume that will be part of their review. Doctor Dairy indicated they're doing that 00:16:33
review. 00:16:38
Scott and his team will do that review on that side of who's responsible for paying the cost. 00:16:43
I believe the County Commission paid for the cost of the last election referendum. 00:16:50
So I would anticipate it's probably because the cost will probably have to be more out of us if that's the case. 00:16:55
I remember. 00:17:02
Which one was a nightmare because you had to like in? 00:17:04
My district, for example, people had to vote. 00:17:08
And Arc. 00:17:10
And then Peterson? 00:17:12
Yeah. 00:17:15
There's a yeah, most people that live on Hwy. 216 voting state elections in Peterson. 00:17:17
And I think it was the state election then and then people were coming to Arcadia Elementary to vote for. 00:17:24
The. 00:17:29
And it was not good. 00:17:31
It's hard enough to get people to vote one in one place, much less. 00:17:36
And I don't. 00:17:39
I don't think that would be. Making people go to polling places would be confusing. 00:17:40
That's why the board probably again, all I can take it at face value from the conversations last night. 00:17:47
I think the June, July. 00:17:54
Maybe September would have to be the time frame. 00:17:56
Host. 00:18:00
But if you'll let me know, then I'll let Doctor Daria know and also. 00:18:03
We'll do our best to have as many questions answered, and certainly they will. 00:18:08
I would envision they would have their board, attorney and whoever else they. 00:18:13
They're using here to advise. 00:18:17
Councillor Busby, do you have any thoughts about when you can put it on your Finance Committee? 00:18:20
First half of November is we've got. 00:18:26
I think the first half of November will be good. 00:18:32
Is it? We got it next week. 00:18:36
They're they're requesting November. 00:18:38
They're requesting a November 7th. 00:18:42
I, you know, again, they, I don't, I don't have an objection to the seventh thing. I mean this, this is as we reviewed last night. 00:18:45
This vote is on whether or not to allow. 00:18:54
The voters to vote on it, I don't think. 00:18:58
This vote is on. Whether the the committee vote and ultimately the council vote is on, whether to allow the Tuscaloosa voters to 00:19:03
vote on it or not, I don't anticipate. 00:19:08
A bloodbath over the central issue. We might get nitpicky over the 100 grand later down the road, but we can. You know, there's. 00:19:15
There's different cups that can be moved around there. 00:19:24
And the big thing? 00:19:30
People would. 00:19:32
Since we voted, yes, people thought all the City Council all wants. 00:19:34
Is voting yes on Sunday alcohol sales and that wasn't the case at all. 00:19:38
We were voting on giving the. 00:19:41
The opportunity to vote on Sunday alcohol sales, that's the same thing. And I think making it clear so that the people will 00:19:44
understand imperative exactly that we're not voting for the tax itself. 00:19:49
What is the local delegation? 00:19:57
Because we do need to answer that, because the city school board is asking for this increase. 00:20:03
They're unanimous on that. I would think they would consider that but. 00:20:10
That's the bigger question. So you're looking at November 7th. 00:20:14
For the they, they would like a council. 00:20:18
Last night they the indication was the 21st. 00:20:21
Today, based off some information that Doctor Gary received from his legal counsel, they actually believe they may need it on the 00:20:26
set I'm trying to get clarity on. 00:20:31
There may be a two week public requirement for. 00:20:38
And so I don't know if it means that means on the 7th it's set for a public hearing and then we vote on it on the 21st. 00:20:43
We're trying to understand that and so we may have some more clarity in the, you know, this is an hour ago the conversation. 00:20:52
So I think we'll get a little bit more clarity moving forward and and that would make sense. There are things we do at times where 00:21:00
we introduce. 00:21:03
At the Council level. 00:21:07
We come back later. 00:21:09
Adopted and we don't meet on the 14th, don't meet on the 14th and the 20th, and we don't meet on the 28th. 00:21:11
So that it would have to be on the 21st. 00:21:18
Veteran's day and then after Thanksgiving. 00:21:25
So then, so we really would need to be on finance next Tuesday. 00:21:30
Next Tuesday we've got Just Projects and Finance, right? But we've got Project Gilmore. So do you want it on Projects? 00:21:36
Now. 00:21:46
What else other than that big incentive proposal? 00:21:48
There's nothing else. No, that's fine. Again, I don't. 00:21:51
I may be off course. 00:21:55
I don't see a lot of contentiousness over the issue. There's some some things to straighten out after the fact, maybe. 00:21:59
I mean, I'm going to vote yes because people should have the right to vote for it or vote against it. 00:22:08
Oh yeah, I'm fine with it on the 7th. 00:22:18
I'm never against people having to drive the boat, that's for sure. 00:22:21
OK. 00:22:25
That. 00:22:30
Depends on what we're. 00:22:31
No, I'll always let people let the people vote. Let the people vote. 00:22:33
That they'll make the Dec. 00:22:37
But don't There was a legislator years ago. 00:22:40
Tried. 00:22:43
Stop us from giving the right to vote. Remember that about alcohol sales. 00:22:45
I said, You know, why are you? 00:22:50
Why would you not want somebody to vote? They voted for you. 00:22:52
So why would you not want them to have opportunity to vote for something else, you know? 00:22:56
Everybody's different, so. 00:23:02
Hey, I will say just to pass on to your constituents. 00:23:07
Burlington announced today that they. 00:23:12
So they'll be up and running about before the holidays and they are hiring. 00:23:18
And I spoke with the pop stroke people yesterday. 00:23:23
They text me and said they're going to send me more information. They're hiring. 00:23:28
So if you know anybody that's looking for jobs with the Tiger Woods group and with Burlington. 00:23:32
I'll be getting the information to pass on to you. 00:23:37
And they and also pop stroke tell me they will be open before the end of the year. 00:23:40
So we'll see. I hope so. That'd be great. Merry Christmas. I just just lay awake at night. I know I can't wait to be there, but 00:23:45
that's out there. My putter. 00:23:50
Hey. 00:23:56
I got an extra 1 if you need, OK, we've got executive session, we need to go and is there a motion to to go into the executive 00:23:57
