Russellville approves RPD vehicles, alcohol license

During its regular meeting July 5, the Russellville City Council approved purchasing new police vehicles and approved an alcohol license for a local business.

The council accepted the lowest bid received for the purchase of eight 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit vehicles for the Russellville Police Department – $40,755.99 per unit for a total of $326,047.92.

The council held a public hearing to solicit citizen input concerning the application for an alcohol license for beer and wine wholesale, received from Adams Beverages, 100 Commerce St., Muscle Shoals. Adams Beverages bought out Shoals Distributing.

The council also approved:

  • A resolution for Jamie Medley to use part of the city right-of-way to access property he owns.
