The city of Union Springs hired two dispatchers. The new employees are Tiffany Shell and Shontrice Balcom.

The Bullock County Humane Society (BCHS) report stated that transports have resumed as of mid-September. The BCHS managed to keep the staff healthy and covid free to date. The BCHS received Black Belt Community Foundation grant for spay and neuter.

They will be partnering with Tuskegee Vet School and local vets to get animals in the city and county spayed/neutered.

BCHS needs help from the citizens to work on catching feral cats to reduce the cat population. The shelter is open daily with office hours from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with covid restrictions. If you have any questions, please call Ginny Allen at 334-782-1952.

The report from Tourism is as follows:

The site is outdated and not mobile-friendly. Midge Padgett said, "We are excited to begin this project." The next Red Door Theatre performance is "Smoke on the Mountain" on Dec 1-4, 2021.

Due to covid recommendations, it will be held at Dream Field Farms. Nearly 75% of the 500 available tickets have already been sold. FPH Bakery will cater the accompanying meals.

The Red Door Theatre was pleased to partner with the Distinguished Young Women of Bullock County to allow the program to be held at the theatre in September. Four local Bullock County seniors participated.
