For the second consecutive meeting, the Daphne City Council did not hold a vote on a de-annexation request from the city of Spanish Fort June 1.
Spanish Fort Mayor Mike McMillan made a request April 29 that Daphne consent to the de-annexation of a 4.19-acre parcel in the Spanish Fort Town Center north of Interstate 10 so that it can be annexed into Spanish Fort. McMillan and City Attorney David Conner approached the council at its May 11 work session to discuss the issue and also came to the council’s May 26 and June 1 meetings hoping for a vote.
At the June 1 meeting the resolution was introduced by Councilman Ron Scott but was not seconded, leading the council to take no action. Scott later said he was concerned that Daphne had not received all the information it had requested regarding the annexation. He said he did not want Daphne to be seen as obstructing progress at the Spanish Fort Town Center, but said he needed more information before making a decision.
