    1. 2 North Jackson Street is now home for Ala. Counties

    Effective today, Alabama Counties have a new home in Montgomery, a home that provides county government with a more visible presence on (and view of) Goat Hill. While in town for the Legislative Conference, county leaders are encouraged to stop by 2 North Jackson Street to see and enjoy what 90 years of unified county leadership have built. For communications purposes, please know that the Association’s phone number, fax number and mailing address remain unchanged.


    2. All County Family Members asked to film video supporting infrastructure investment

    Attention, County Leaders heading to Montgomery this week! This year’s Legislative Conference will include a “Fund County Roads & Bridges Video Center,” which will be open Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and housed in the upstairs Riverview Rooms of the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel. All members of the County Family — including Commissioners, Administrators, Engineers, Emergency Managers, 9-1-1 Directors, Revenue Officers and License Inspectors — are asked to arrive to Montgomery in time to film a very quick, painless video expressing their support for an investment in county infrastructure.
