He said a final draft should be available in late January.“The transportation study is complete and available to the council,” he said.Thomas brought the council up to date on the installation of the LED lights.“All 130 LED lights are now up and we have taken down the Cobra heads and put them back into inventory,” he said. “There is the possibility of putting some of the Cobra head lights up in some of the dark places in town, such as on Graham Boulevard. That would increase the cost of power but then, we aren’t going to put up 100 lights. We just want to make some of the dark spots brighter.” The LED lights were made possible through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Brundidge and Fairhope are the first Alabama city’s to complete their projects.The council expressed appreciation to Aloice Flowers for, once again, providing the city with its community Christmas tree.The next meeting of the Brundidge City Council will be at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 4.
