Tempers Flare at Cordova, Alabama, City Council Meeting

Following up on an article we published May 24 regarding Cordova, Alabama, Mayor Jack Scott’s insistence on keeping Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) homes out of Cordova, The Birmingham News reports that 200 people showed up for a city council meeting to protest the ban, many venting their frustrations.  Mayor Scott suggested residents consider buying modular homes, which are allowed in the city, and one resident said the best price she could find was $105,000, not within the means of many Cordova residents.  At one point tempers flared, and when Mayor Scott threatened to have people ejected from the meeting, he was told to get out.  Zoning board member Fred Porter said anyone who lived in a single section manufactured home would be grandfathered in as long as they had a permit.  However, Mayor Scott did not relent on changing the ordinance, but said the matter would be taken under consideration.
