Pair of Covington County mayors look for continued improvement in 2018
COVINGTON COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -
Reports on area mayors and their outlook for 2018 in their perspective continues. WSFA 12 News reporter Bryan Henry traveled to Covington County and visited two mayors Friday.
Andalusia Mayor Earl Johnson is eager to get started on what will no doubt be the next big thing in town. Construction is just weeks away from renovating the Andalusia High School football stadium and the school auditorium. It’s a $12.5 million deal. The goal is to have it all completed before the the start of school next fall.
15 miles away in Opp, Johnson’s counterpart, Mayor Becky Bracke, has big dreams of her own. Bracke survived her rookie year as mayor and is now focused on bringing downtown back to life.
2017 ended on a positive with the renovation of a 90-year-old train depot. The mayor is counting on the same community synergy to bring vitality back to downtown where it’s seen better days.
How does mayor Bracke plan to accomplish that? WSFA 12 News reporter Bryan Henry will have more details.
