Breaking News From Bessemer

The Western Tribune was the only paper to have a reporter at the Bessemer Council meeting last night, so here is the scoop.

The Western Tribune reported this week that a deal has been struck between Bessemer’s Mayor Ed May and the City Council to approve a $25 million bond issue to complete a water project to Alabaster.

Well, the council voted Tuesday night 7-0 to do just that.

It was quite a night for the mayor. He presented three checks totaling $3.5 million to be signed and sent to the Bessemer schools getting the city caught up with its obligation.

Also, May presented his 2007-2008 budget to the council.

It calls for a spending plan of $39.4 million, up from this year’s $35.7 million.

The mayor said the budget has a $52,580 reserve.

More on all of these stories in next week's print edition of The Western Tribune.
