 If you have lost or found a pet, contact
Spanish Fort City Hall with information and a
photo of the pet, if possible.  This information
may be posted on the
City's Facebook page,
Spanish Fort, Alabama,
 
and shared with area veterinarians, animal
shelters, etc.
  Please do your part by being a
responsible 
pet owner.  Have your pets spayed or
neutered. Pets should be micro-chipped or,
at the very least, wear a substantial collar
with current ID tags attached so that, should
they go missing, someone who finds your
pet can return them to you as soon as possible.

Spirit Park Tennis Court Renovations Continue



Renovations continue on the eight Spirit Park tennis courts as the power washing of the courts now complete.  The next step in the process will be the resurfacing of all courts.  Unfortunately, work at this stage cannot be done when temperatures are forecast to drop below 60 degrees.  We will make every effort to ensure that some courts are available for play during the renovations by not working on all courts simultaneously.
Please be patient during this ongoing project as the outcome will certainly be worth the wait.
