Mr. Platt, I would like for you to publish the following for my fellow citizens in the City Of Semmes. This information was taken directly from the Alabama League of Municipalities.

I think the public needs to be educated about the fact that all that has been done in the city wouldn’t have been possible without the approval of council. Everyone is under the impression that the mayor is the one who has done it all. Please find a way to share this…

The council has authority over the finances and property of the municipality. The council establishes policies, passes ordinances, sets tax levels, determines what sorts of services the municipality will offer and has authority over all other legislative aspects of municipal government.
