GOOD HOPE, Ala. – The Good Hope City Council met for a short meeting Monday night. Councilmen John Harris and Maxie Jones were not in attendance. Mayor Jerry Bartlett asked that everyone continue to keep the Harris and Jones families in their thoughts and prayers, as both men are battling health problems.

There were no resolutions or ordinances to discuss, but a few updates were given. Bartlett reported on the many ongoing road projects around the city of Good Hope including:

  • The intersection at the 3-way stop sign on Montcrest- repairing culverts
  • Willow Springs- sewer line replacement
  • Lindsey Road leading to the pump station- culvert replacement
  • Hathcock Park- culvert replacement

“We’ve got a lot of major stuff like that that we are doing,” said Bartlett. “This type of year is when you gotta do it or you aren’t going to get it done.”

The Good Hope Back-to-School Bash is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. More details will be released soon.

Good Hope hosted a successful softball tournament over the weekend, reported Councilman Taft Dillashaw, who said, “We did real good with that and it was a long weekend.”

Saturday’s thunderstorms delayed the games, but the tournament was completed Sunday.

Deputy Corey Freeman has been assigned to Good Hope by the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office. Freeman has been busy reminding fireworks stand owners about preventative measures to help guard against break-ins. He said a fireworks stand in Dodge City was recently burglarized and he hopes to make sure others take proper precautions.
