City names new industrial access road

The Andalusia City Council on Tuesday voted to name the new industrial access road.

In an unanimous vote, council members named the new portion of the industrial access road, which is located to the west of Sutton Road, West Progress Drive, and renamed the existing portion East Progress Drive.

Mayor Earl Johnson said the new road should be complete in the next couple weeks.

“It’s a tremendous asset to the city,” he said. “We started this six years ago in my last term. It’s been a long, hard project. We’ve had some delays, but we’ve stuck to it.”

Johnson said he felt the name of the industrial access road was a proper name.

In other business the council:

• passed two human resource policy changes.

One to bring employees’ life insurance and health insurance inline with city’s policies, and the other to approve leisure services job description realignments for job four positions to coincide with the evolving responsibilities.
