SOUTH VINEMONT, Ala. -Those coming and going from the Vinemont Sports Complex now have a smoother drive, as the Park Drive project has been completed. The project took longer than expected due to delays during the pandemic. With the center striping finished, Mayor Radginal Dodson said Tuesday, “It’s looking pretty cheerful!”  

Dodson continued, “I have gotten good reports on it. Everybody going in and out, they got accustomed to the chuckholes in the dern Park Drive and when they got all the new paving, I think they really appreciated that.”  

Concerns were raised about safety at the entrance to the complex off Highway 31 and if anything could be done to make improvements. Park director Mike Graves explained that the state had the right of way.  

In the business portion of the Tuesday night’s South Vinemont Town Council meeting, the previous month’s minutes and financials were approved. Councilmember Sonya Copeland, once again, chose to abstain (not vote), due to the financials but did not express a reason for doing so.  

The mayor and council will be attending a Certified Municipal Official Training Class in Athens June 23. The council approved the registration fees along with food and mileage expenses associated with the class.  

The council also voted to approve Town Clerk, Kayecea Sasser, to attend the Alabama Municipal Clerk Fall Training Institute. She will attend the program Aug. 4-6 in Tuscaloosa.  

The South Vinemont Town Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in South Vinemont Town Hall.
