Mayor Walt Maddox to Pitch Plan to Re-Open Tuscaloosa on April 28th
The drastic measures the city of Tuscaloosa has taken to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus are working, mayor Walt Maddox said Tuesday afternoon, and he plans to present a proposal to re-open shuttered businesses to the city council on April 28th.
In a post to his social media accounts, Maddox acknowledged the extraordinary efforts that area residents have taken to combat the virus, including the closing of all area bars, restaurants and non-essential businesses to public use.
Maddox said on April 28th, he will present a plan to re-open those businesses as long as doing so will not compromise the public health, will not clash with Alabama governor Kay Ivey's directives and will leave room for flexibility in completely these unprecedented times.
Read his full message below and pray, cross your fingers or just hold out hope that circumstances allow the city to resume a sense of normalcy that quickly.
