Perdido Beach councilman doesn’t live in town, but that might be OK

And even though Resmondo has not lived in the town for six years, state law appears to allow him to continue serving as an elected official.

Alabama law states that a councilman “shall reside within the limits of the city or town during his term of office.” But the issue of residency centers on intent, according to the Alabama League of Municipalities. In other words, someone like Resmondo, forced from his home after Hurricane Ivan, can serve on the council if he has future plans for residency.
