REGIONAL CONCERNS

OCTOBER 2017

After a request by the Lillian Civic and Legislative Committee, State Rep. Steve McMillan asked the Alabama Department of Transportation to look into the traffic situation at the intersection of US Highway 98 and Perdido Street.

At 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 13 an ALDOT Engineer will give a report and inform residents on the recommended solution to the problem. All are invited to attend the meeting at the Lillian Community Club. The group meets in the small room at the far south end of the hall. If the room cannot accommodate all attendees, the meeting will be moved to the main hall.

With verification from Baldwin County Planning and Zoning Department, the lot that is being cleared across from North Spanish Cove Drive is zoned Single Family Residential. Unless the zoning is changed, only single family homes may be built on the site. It is not zoned for condominiums, apartments or any other type of multi-family use. The lots, that were once part of Spanish Cove, are still restricted by covenants, according to a near-by resident.

If you were inundated by phone calls during the weeks before the run-off election in September, be prepared to suffer them once again before the election for US Senate on Dec. 12. The voters list that is used by "robo-callers" is provided by the office of the Secretary of State, not the Baldwin County Elections office, part of the Office of Probate.

Probate Judge Tim Russell suggests that voters request the State Legislature to pass legislation banning release of the information. Contact State Rep. Steve McMillan, 334-242-7723, email bcld07@gmail.com or State Senator Trip Pittman, 334-242-7897, trip.pittman@alsentate.gov.

Regarding the election on Dec. 12, in addition to the vote for US Senator, there will be a proposition on the ballot to retain the one mil levy for the Baldwin County school system. This is not an additional tax, but an extension of one that provides one dollar of every thousand dollars of property value to benefit the school system. The proposition needs 50% of the vote to pass.

Rules for absentee voting and the application may be found on the Baldwin County website, www.baldwincountyal.gov, click on Probate, then Elections.
