CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman City Council on Monday evening welcomed the Cullman High School Bearcats basketball team, recent Alabama 6A state champions, pausing the meeting for photos and presenting each player a trophy on behalf of the city.

“Guys, we couldn’t be more proud of you,” said Mayor Woody Jacobs. “It was exciting. Y’all played Coach Stu’s brand – ‘chaos.’ It was exciting to watch.”

The council and mayor also took time to recognize Jeff Adams as he prepares to retire from his position as manager of the Cullman Wastewater Treatment Plant. Adams leaves with 25 years of service at the plant, 12 as superintendent/manager. His retirement will take effect May 1, when plant operator Jake Calloway will step in as interim manager.

In business, the council passed a resolution to authorize the mayor to enter into a contract with Growing Alabama for a credit allocation for “site preparation and/or infrastructure work to be undertaken on recently purchased property in Industrial Park V” in the amount of $662,658.

The Cullman City Council meets at 7:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month At Cullman City Hall.  The public is invited to attend.
