At last night’s council meeting, Ward 1 City Council representative Anthony Smith has announced his resignation effective Feb. 29 .
“It has been an honor and privilege to represent Ward 1 on the Homewood City Council for the past 7.5 years,” Smith wrote in an email. “However, as most of you know, Shirley and I have been trying to sell our home for several months now. Although we have not yet been able to do so, we went forward with our purchase of a new home last month that is located in Ward 4. We have spent the past few weeks slowly transitioning to our new home. While we have not yet completed that process, we are now closer to the end of it than we are to the beginning.”
Smith encouraged others in Ward 1 to apply for his vacancy. Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter to Linda Cook, the City Clerk, at Linda.Cook@homewoodal.org beginning March 1.
A ward map is available on the City of Homewood’s website.
