Gordo Council: April 21-27 named Parental Alienation Prevention Week


The April 1st Gordo Town Council made quorum last Monday evening, but councilmen Terence Williamson and Tim Washington were both absent for the meeting.

The first item of new business addressed was an ordinance and resolution of permanent nature, as Mayor Craig Patterson introduced a new proclamation before the council to name April 21-27, 2019 as Parental Alienation Prevention Week. April 25th is Parental Alienation Awareness Bubbles of Love Day.

“This is dealing with divorced homes with kids,” Patterson said. “We partnered with this association in calling for the parents to be a family even if they are divorced and not to down either parent.”

Patterson also stated that he had the opportunity to meet with state representative Rodney Sullivan while attending meeting in Montgomery recently.

“He said he would be more than happy to help us on some things,” Patterson said. “He’s already discussed a few things on the new road. He’s getting his feet wet in a bunch of things.”

Under departmental business, Gordo Fire Chief Sam Powell said that the fire department had been busy during the month of March, especially during the last week.
