Happy fall season to all here in Foley. It is finally nice weather after a very hot summer. We are moving full speed ahead here at the city. Let me tell you about some things we have going on.
I am appreciative of the support of the City Council in addressing our growing city’s needs. The 2024 budget includes more than $50 million in capital projects, plus $22 million in carryovers from last year. These projects address quality of life, infrastructure, public safety and education. You will see these projects all around town.
Road construction on South Juniper and S. Pecan streets should be finished before December. Both of these have been challenging. We are still waiting on outside approval on the County Road 12/Hwy. 59 intersection improvements and the repaving of the Foley Beach Express. We will give plenty of notice to citizens when they begin. I ask for your patience with this progress.
I’m happy to report that our long-awaited pickleball project is off the ground. The adjacent road is nearly constructed and court construction will begin soon.
