At last week’s City Council Work Session,City Council President Billy Young said they did not receive a Mayor’s report from Perkins or Attorney’s report from Attorney Major Madison.

Business Items from the Work Session will be for discussion.

Highlights of the Business Items came from Young, including:

-Annual Selma Youth Conference from July 26-29, which the city council will participate in. Former Selma City Councilwoman Angela Benjamin will host.

-Members of the Selma Redevelopment Authority, including former Selma City Councilwoman Susan Youngblood appeared and asked for donations.

-The Land Bank, which the city council is looking into a solution by possibly establishing a land bank agency that would make it easier for the city to buy dilapidated, tax delinquent homes and get them back on the tax rolls.
