CORDOVA — Cordova will once again be participating in an annual spring cleanup sponsored by Alabama People Against a Littered State.

The City Council voted Tuesday night to pay its yearly dues of $100 to PALS, which provides trash bags and other supplies for the cleanup.

More than 358 tons of litter and debris were collected statewide during last year’s “Don’t Drop It On Alabama” effort, according to the PALS website.

Mayor Jack Scott said this year’s cleanup has been scheduled for April 21-28.

“We’re going to get the schools involved in this. They do a good job, and the county usually helps with it, too,” Scott said.

In other action from the meeting, the Council hired Jared Hall as a part-time police officer and made several city board appointments.

The appointments were Billy Petitt to the Housing Authority, Carrie Williams to the Library Board, Lewis Owens and Katie Lewis to the Zoning Board of Adjustments and Tina Woods to the Planning Commission.

Scott added that there has been no word from FEMA officials regarding approval of downtown demolition.
