Message from the Mayor
I am very pleased to announce that Ed Short notified me today that Covington Electric Cooperative has graciously given $25,000 towards the construction of the new pool and pool house at Veterans Memorial Park. We have also been notified that Southeast Alabama Gas District has made a $5,000 contribution towards the project. These funds will be added to the $50,000 given by PowerSouth, $50,000 from the Solon and Martha Dixon Foundation and the $100,000 contribution from the Estep Foundation.
These contributions total over $230,000 towards covering the cost of the project. Our projected costs on the project is approximately $400,000. So these financial contributions are going a long way towards covering the city's costs on the project.
I cannot say thank you enough to these organizations and to many of you who have made donations to the project. I'm excited for this project to be completed and for the public to be able to use it. I encourage you to visit the pool site at your convenience.
Mayor John Bartholomew
