CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman City Council on Monday evening approved a 10-year tax abatement for “Project Flex,” described by the council as a medical research equipment company. The company plans to make a $50,000 capital investment, and will receive an exemption from City taxes except those designated for education.

The council also approved a resolution to authorize Mayor Woody Jacobs to negotiate the purchase of two properties adjacent to Heritage Park and Art Park. The properties consist of one house and site at each park, and will be negotiated after fair market value of the properties is established.

The council also approved:

  • A special event request from Julie Freeman of Friends of the Public Libraries of Cullman County for a Story Book 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run on April 27, 2024
  • A special event request from Rita Dean of the Warehouse District for the annual street sale on April 12-13, 2024
