That does not stand for Democratic National Committee.
It stands for Do Nothing Council.
This morning the council reconvened to address the issue of incentives for Colonial Tannehill regarding movie theaters. This was a public hearing, as required by law. There were no public comments, so it was moved and seconded that session be adjourned. The mayor wanted to bring up a new issue, or revisit and old issue, the water line bond. There was a discussion about whether he could do that and all, but it was pointed out that a motion was on the floor and must be acted on. Sarah Belcher was asked to withdraw her second, and if she had, Jesse Matthews could withdraw his motion, so the mayor could speak. Belcher refused, the motion to adjourn was voted on, and Belcher, Davidson, Matthews and Soles voted to adjourn.
They did this fully aware of what the mayor was going to do, because that was brought up in the discussion.
More on this, the Bessemer Neighborhood Association reaction, and the Bessemer City Council planning session that followed today's meeting coming tomorrow.
