BERLIN, Ala. – As town councils across the county adjust their meetings and procedures to account for safe social distancing, The Tribune reached out to the Berlin Town Council to see how the pandemic has affected plans for Cullman’s newest municipality. In response, the council gave a few brief, but promising updates:
“In late March, we decided to suspend office hours for the clerk until further notice and have her conduct as much business as possible by telephone and email.
“The council did meet in person on April 20 to conduct business by simply spreading out the seating for improved distancing. Agenda items were focused on the upcoming road maintenance takeover on May 1, and site prep for the temporary town hall and farmers’ market.”
Site preparation is underway for the temporary town hall, and the council hopes to be in the building by June (weather and construction permitting). Site prep for the farmers’ market will begin in early May, and the opening is still scheduled for June 1.
