The COVID-19 pandemic has slammed the Mobile/Baldwin area just as it has the rest of the country, and in this week’s Lagniappe we have the latest rundown on the fast-changing events.
Also this week:
• In Baldwin County, organizers are bemoaning the cancellation of the 68th Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
• Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran is leading the charge to have the state laws changed that require the Mobile City Council to have a supermajority to pass almost anything, but some on the council are fighting back.
• The Mobile Police Department’s new downtown Central Precinct has opened, providing the business and entertainment districts with a new level of police protection.
• While Landmark Districts have become more popular in Baldwin County, Fairhope Mayor Karin Wilson says they present a growth barrier to her city and a challenge to its future.
