been working on so many items since my last newsletter at the end
of February. Probably many more than I could even dare to
fit into this column, so I'll just try to hit the most important
topics. First, let me say that the City is doing very
and things have been very busy.
update on annexations - we annexed over 130
properties into the City Limits in February & March. All
of these annexations were by "owner
meaning that the owner of the property requested to join the
City. It's exciting to me that everyone wants to be included
and be a part of our new city. That alone says so much about
the pride that our citizens have in the Semmes Community. We
still have many more annexation petitions to process and will be
processing more through the City Council in September and
If you are interested in joining the new City
of Semmes please call City
Hall at 251/649-8811 for more specific information.
Also, the Annexation Petition Form is available on the City
website at www.cityofsemmes.org/forms.htm
for progress to begin on a new Honor
and also a Municipal
as well.... we'll be holding public input meetings as soon as the
designs are completed. So please plan on attending these
meetings - we want to hear what you have to say!
continue to partner with our Semmes
Volunteer Fire Department.
If you've driven by the fire station on Wulff Road (Station #1),
you'll notice that the station is now manned 24/7. This is
because the City has hired 4 full-time firefighters who rotate 24
hour shifts. By having a firefighter at the station 24/7,
our response times to fires, accidents and medical calls are
faster. Just a few minutes can save a life.
Public safety is so important to me and to everyone that I've
spoken with in the Semmes Community. This is your tax
dollars at work - providing you, your family and your neighbors
safer place to live!
a community is prospering and heading in a positive direction,
businesses owners are attracted to the area. I'd like to
welcome Mattress Depot to Semmes (7930 Moffett Rd by Papa Johns & Eyeglass
World). Also, opening soon will be A1
Chinese & Hibachi
in the Liberty Square Shopping Center behind CVS at the corner of
Moffett & Wulff Road. At the beginning of August, on the
opposite corner, Walgreens
is scheduled to open! I've said it before, and I'll say it
again -- the City of
Semmes wants to be a “business
city – by attracting new business we also gain new jobs for our
hope that you enjoy our newsletter. Please feel free to send
me your comments - I'd love to hear from you! My email is email@example.com
informed - Get involved
help us to make Semmes THE
star of Mobile County!
