Spring has sprung, and activities and events are happening in St. Albans. Take A Walk on The Wildside took place on April 15th and was a great success! This year’s theme was “Water Water Everywhere,” and people of all ages enjoyed it. A big thank-you to Debbie Keener and all the volunteers for their hard work in making this event happen.

The city has taken down 27 dilapidated structures and has at least eight more on the list. Progress is being made on the Junior High demolition. We are waiting for the final cost, determined by the demolition and abatement companies. Once we have that, we will secure financing and demolish the structure. I am so proud of the building department for all they have accomplished, making SA a more beautiful community!
I want to thank ALL the city and MUC employees for the job that they do in making St. Albans a great town and a great place to live! We continue to move SA forward and make it a place that folks from all around enjoy!
This and other factors landed St. Albans as one of the top 50 places to visit WORLDWIDE in 2023 by Forbes Magazine Trip Advisor! What a fantastic honor! God bless everyone, and may God continue to bless the great City of St. Albans!
