Florala City Hall Meeting

Residents of Florala packed City Hall yesterday (Wednesday) to try and block the development of a motel.

Developers want to build a motel near Florala’s prized Lake Jackson, but most locals don't want anything commercial on that particular spot.

But while the motel's developers were facing an overwhelmingly opposing crowd, attorney Allen Woodard didn't stand down.

The City Council will have to vote to approve the plans and that will be the final step.

Florala’s mayor was absent from the meeting.
