Make sure you’ve got a license, insurance

Those doing work for the City of Brewton are now required to provide proper licensing.

The council voted Monday to also require those contracted companies to provide proof of up-to-date insurance and business license paperwork.

In other business, the council approved resolutions to:

• provide matching funds for an Alabama Department of Transportation grant that, if awarded, would install new sidewalks from Tiger Drive to Brooks Boulevard at the West Alexander subdivision; and

• to apply for a community development block grant to upgrade sewer in the areas of Liles Boulevard, Sowell Road in the flats area and Fairview Circle.

Additionally, a committee was established to appoint two residents to the city’s industrial development board. Those chosen will be announced at next week’s board meeting.
