  • When is YOUR County Day @ the Legislature?
    Since the winter weather lead ACCA to cancel activities planned for Tuesday, Feb. 11, there are several counties that need to reschedule their trips to the State House. The following counties – Coffee, Escambia, Etowah, Hale, Jefferson, Lauderdale, Marion, Marshall and Russell can contact Brandy Perry at 334-263-7594 to select another date. ACCA would be glad to help any other county that needs a “make up” day. The following Tuesdays would be good options if they work with your county’s meeting schedule: Feb. 25, March 11 or March 18.   

    Agenda item for March
    If any changes are needed to voting precincts, the commission must make the changes at the first meeting in March of even-numbered years, in accordance with Ala. Code § 17-6-3. If you have questions, contact Mary Pons.

    Headed to D.C.?
    If you are going to the NACo Legislative Conference in a couple of weeks, you won’t want to miss the Alabama Congressional Delegates’ Breakfast on Tuesday, March 4. It’s a great time to gather with the whole Alabama delegation. Separate registration, available using the previous link, is required for this event, and the last day to register is coming up soon on Monday, Feb. 24. 

    Free defensive driving training for deputies begins next month
    The ACCA Self-Insurance Funds are sponsoring a basic defensive driving course March 5. The course will be offered in Monroeville for the following counties: Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Covington, Escambia, Lowndes, Marengo, Monroe, Washington and Wilcox. Friday is the last day to register, and openings are limited. If participation in this pilot region is good, then training will be scheduled for all other sections of the state. If you have questions, contact Henry van Arcken, director of insurance services, at 334-263-7594. 

    ACCA office closed today
    The ACCA office is closed today in honor of the state holiday, and it will reopen Tuesday at 8 a.m.
