MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Two Mobile County legislators are expected to join Mobile Mayor Sam Jones and state officials in Trinity Gardens to discuss a new state law aimed at reducing blighted neighborhoods.
Trinity Gardens could benefit from this law, sponsored by state Sen. Linda Coleman, D-Birmingham, and signed by Gov. Bob Riley on May 21.
It creates the Alabama Land Bank Authority.
The seven-member board will help clear back taxes and public liens from blighted and abandoned properties, returning them to productive use.
Bill Johnson, director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, was scheduled to join state Sen. Vivian Figures, state Rep. James Gordon and other officials at the event Tuesday
