Childersburg City Council sets public hearing for new Jack’s restaurant


CHILDERSBURG, Ala. – The Childersburg City Council has set a public hearing for December 5 to consider a project development agreement with Jack’s Family Restaurant. If approved as proposed, the new location will be fueled with help of a 1.5-cent local sales tax rebate.

In other council action during its second December meeting, surplus property was accepted from Mike Gilliland, and the Mayor was authorized to execute related documents. The approximately one acre along Highway 76 near the Water Works facility is adjacent to property previously donated to the City.

During the Town Hall portion of the meeting, Mayor Ken Wesson thanked the countless volunteers for their contribution to the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony last Thursday, along with related holiday activities. “It was both spectacular and heart-warming to see,” he said.

Commercial Development Authority President Monty Powell reported a big first step in redevelopment of downtown Childersburg into a viable retail center. “This past week, we purchased the former J&J Drug property with plans to use grant funds to renovate to suit one of two businesses interested in that location,” said Powell. “Our goal is to continue to work to help make properties come available and put the right people in them.”

A petition bearing 36 signatures was presented to the Mayor and Council requesting removal of newly installed speed bumps along 9th Ave. SW, asserting that the speed bumps are hazardous to both persons and vehicles.
