The City of Spanish Fort is in the
planning stages of opening a brand
new, state-of-the-art, public library!! 


I LOVE MY PUBLIC LIBRARY

We are thrilled about this project
and hope that you will join us in
spreading the news to others
in the surrounding areas.

In preparation for the opening of the
first-ever City of Spanish Fort Library,
we want to hear from you!
What are your ideas and expectations
for this exciting project?

Please send your questions and
comments to the Library Director.
We will do our best to answer 
them and add them to our
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
regarding the new library.
*********************************************

PLEASE MAKE IT EASIER FOR US TO
REUNITE YOU WITH YOUR LOST PET!!

If "Rocky" dug out under the backyard fence,
or got away when someone opened the door,
 would he be one of the fortunate pets to be
reunited with his family? Would you know how
and where to begin your search for him?  

PET ID TO RETURN HOME

One of your first calls should be to Spanish
Fort City Hall, 251-626-4884,  to determine
whether anyone has brought your pet to City
Hall for holding. When a lost pet is picked up or
brought to City Hall, special efforts are made
to reunite that pet with its owner. The best
scenario is that the lost pet has an I.D. tag
on its collar, which allowing City staff to
quickly reunite pets with their owner.  If no I.D. is
present, we have the animal checked for the
existence of an implanted micro-chip
which would include contact information.
We also post the pet's photo on the City's
facebook page, Spanish Fort, Alabama,
where it may be shared by others throughout
the area.  If no I.D. or micro-chip is found,
the animal is taken to the Baldwin
County Animal Control facility in
Magnolia Springs, with our hopes that the
animal will be adopted and not euthanized.

Our pets love us unconditionally.  
Let's all make sure that they can find
their way back home in the event
 that pet and owner become separated. 
 
Please make sure that your pet wears a
collar or harness which includes contact
 information, such as home phone number or
name and phone number of your veterinarian.
 It is also beneficial to have your pet
micro-chipped by your veterinarian, just
in case the animal should lose its collar.
The information contained in a micro-chip
may be used to identify a pet, whether it
goes missing in your neighborhood or
while on vacation miles away from home.

Lastly, please familiarize yourself with and
abide by Spanish Fort's leash laws, which
are outlined in City Ordinance No. 115-2001.
















   








Welcome to the official website of the City of Spanish  Fort!  Whether you are a resident, considering a move, or just visiting our city, I hope that this site will become your go-to source for useful information about Spanish Fort and Baldwin County.  Please check back often for the most current announcements and information.  Our City staff strives to provide the best possible services for citizens and visitors alike and appreciates your comments and questions.

MOSQUITO CONTROL

This is the time of year when the mosquito
population is at its highest and people
are at highest risk of contracting
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
and West Nile Virus
from bites by affected mosquitoes.

We all must do our part in controlling
mosquitoes by interrupting their life cycle,
as well as taking precautions to 
protect ourselves from mosquito bites.
Every few days, empty standing water from
flower pots, containers, pet's water bowls
and birdbaths around your yard.  Turn
wheelbarrows over so as not to collect
water.  Rid your yard of tires or any other
items which may hold water in which
mosquitoes may breed.

MOSQUITO SPRAYING

The City of Spanish Fort sprays the City's
public areas weekly before and during
mosquito activity. All spraying activity is
done at dusk or several hours before sunrise,
Monday - Thursday. Larvicide mosquito rings
are available at City Hall for treating standing
water and preventing mosquitoes from
hatching. Larvicide rings are non-toxic to
 humans or pets. Call City Hall at
251.626.4884 to check availability
of the larvicide dunks.

For more information about controlling the
mosquito population in Baldwin County, visit
the Baldwin County Animal Control website
or call 251.947.3618.
