Tips for Increasing Physical Activity

Make physical activity a regular part of the day

Choose activities that you enjoy and can do regularly. Fitting activity into a daily routine can be easy — such as taking a brisk 10 minute walk to and from the parking lot, bus stop, or subway station. Or, join an exercise class. Keep it interesting by trying something different on alternate days. Every little bit adds up and doing something is better than doing nothing. Continue Reading →

Birthday To Remember

A Birthday To Remember in Semmes AL

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she’d like to have for her birthday. “I’d like to be eight again…” she replied, still looking in the mirror. On the morning of her birthday, he woke up early, made her a nice big bowl of Froot Loops, and then took her to Adventure World. Continue Reading →

 The Mayor of the City of Semmes has established “Advisory Committees” composed of Council Members and individuals from the Semmes Community (both within the City Limits as well as the Jurisdictional Limits).  These Advisory Committees function as a “working” arm of the City Council.  Advisory Committees enable Council Members to split the workload and concentrate their efforts toward improving specific areas.  Advisory Committees may be dissolved or new ones created as needed.  Advisory Committees are a structured way for individual citizens to share their opinions and perspectives, study issues, and develop recommendations in a focused, small group structure.  The primary purpose for Advisory Committees to have membership from citizens in the Community is to provide advice and input, from a citizen perspective, to the City Council. The principal job of an Advisory Committee lies in the investigation, study and evaluation of that segment of the municipal operation assigned to it.  Committees report recommendations to the Mayor and City Council usually with a Project Request Form (PRF).  It should be emphasized that memberships on an Advisory Committee does not carry any administrative powers.  The Advisory Committee cannot implement their recommendations without formal approval from the Mayor/City Council.  All expenditure of funds as well as legislative decisions are only made by the Mayor/City Council (by Ordinance or Resolution) prior to implementation.  These committees should discuss, formulate and transmit well-developed, thoughtful recommendations to the Mayor and City Council in a timely manner. Specific goals/projects are assigned to each Advisory Committee by the Mayor based on the current and future needs of the Community.  These goals/projects are developed based on perspectives and advice from the City Council, key issues, public comments received at Council Meetings, town hall type meetings, emails, personal contacts and letters, or just the general recognized need.  Goals/Projects may be amended or modified, escalated in priority, new ones created or even some removed from the Advisory Committee Charters by the Mayor as necessary.
