Alex City receiving grant for renovations

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDER CITY, AL (WSFA) -

30 years ago cities like Alex City could have paid all if not most of their street work out of the general fund but not anymore.

A $278,000 ALDOT grant will allow Alex City leaders to start renovating Broad Street including new pavement, new trees, period lighting and better parking. Business owners are applauding the upcoming construction work, even though it will be a mess for a while.

Grants are the way business is done these days and without them Broad Street would remain what it is today; broken and riddled with potholes and a dated look. The entire renovation project will cost around $600,000.
