CULLMAN, Ala. – Michael Sullins was appointed to a full, six-year term on the City of Cullman Planning Commission at Monday’s Cullman City Council meeting. Mayor Woody Jacobs made the recommendation, and the council agreed. Sullins had been serving a partial term; he was appointed back in June 2022 to fill a vacancy on the commission.   

The council authorized Jacobs to enter into a purchase agreement for bucket trucks for Cullman Fire Rescue. While the trucks will be ordered soon, they are not expected to arrive until 2025 and 2026 due to supply chain issues. 

“If you want a bucket truck right now for the industry, the power board or the Co-op, they told us it’s a 60-month (lead),” explained Jacobs. “We’re going to have to order something that’s going to be two budget years down, but if you don’t commit, you don’t get.” 

The council also approved the following agenda items: 

  • Resolution 2023-30 to extend the bid for resale fuel for the Cullman Regional Airport with Epic Fuels 
  • Second reading of Ordinance 2023-14 to adopt the 2021 International Building Code and companion codes
