Mountain Brook’s City Council met on Monday, May 23, at the Board of Education Building. The pre-meeting began at 6 p.m. and the Council meeting followed at 7 p.m.
The Council ratified the execution of the storm debris removal contract with Jefferson County Commission concerning the damages resulting from the April 27 tornados.
The Council approved the conditional use of parking spaces between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for a new Greek restaurant that will be located at 2911-2913 Cahaba Road in Mountain Brook Village. The restaurant will open in four to five months with the name still undecided. It will be a full-service, dine-in restaurant serving lunch and dinner.
Also approved by the Council was the authorization of the payment of $4,818.67 to Citizens to Save 280. This sum is the first payment of the $10,000 payment approved earlier this year. Working with Citizens to Save 280, Walter M. Kulash, Walter Schoel Engineering, and Nimrod Long and Associates are working to find an alternative solution for the traffic congestion on Highway 280 to counter the proposal suggested by state officials.
