The current Mayor of Birmingham has provided endless entertainment and headaches for it's citizens. The mayor, that was taken in to custody by Federal Agents for taking bribes and said Birmingham will host the 2020 Olympics, has proposed that we build a super dome that will cost $630 million. The next step would be the BJCC paying architects $666,000 a month and acquiring land.
Meanwhile, the city has yet to pass a budget for fiscal year 2010, 14 days after the start of the new budget year. In dispute is the citys financial health: either $26.4 million in the black or $17 million in the red.
At the ground breaking ceremony a group of 20 or so gathered to protest.
