City lifts stop order

The city lifted its stop-work order this week on the Point Clear construction project of William Dorgan that it halted two weeks ago, according to city officials.

“I will be pulling that stop-work order this morning,” Barry Fulford, building official, said Thursday. “I have been in touch with (Baldwin County) and the (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) this week. We wanted (Dorgan) to do a little more than the Corps required.”

Fulford said the city would defer to the county and the Corps to handle all permitting for the project that Dorgan started last year. But he said he also made recommendations to those agencies on how to limit environmental impacts at the site.
