Public safety coverage may expand

The Planning Commission at its meeting Thursday sent a unanimous favorable recommendation to the City Council to annex a portion of U.S. Highway 90 and Alabama Highway 181

The extension would annex rights-of-way of U.S. Highway 90, from County Road 13 east of Daphne corporate limits and Alabama Highway 181, from the interchange of I-10 south to where the road becomes two lanes.

“Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department currently services the area,” Jones said. “However…it is in the interest of public safety to provide for police and fire protection in this area, thereby closing the gap of protection in this section of the city.”
