"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Scottsboro City Council Regular Session, July 8, 2013

Monday was a regular session of the Scottsboro City Council.
Tourism: J.P. Parsons, Tourism Director Jackson County Chamber of Commerce made a presentation on area tourism. $55million in dollars are the dollar amounts from tourism in Jackson Co.  719 employees are employed by the tourism industry in Jackson County.
Reports: Councilman Smith suggested a joint letter from the city council to our Federal Elected Officials in regards to helping citizens regarding the flooding issues around the city. Apparently a citizen's home is about to be washed away and FEMA will not assist the family. It was reported that the citizen requested help from Rep. Mo Brooks and was refused help.
