John Archibald: An Audit Reveals a Mess at the Water Works
Lawmakers in Montgomery continue to debate a bill placing new restrictions on the Birmingham Water Works Board. The water works and city are fighting the measure, but a new audit doesn’t do much to help their cause. The audit, paid for by the water works board, describes loose rules, poor accounting and bad communication. We talk about it with Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald.
Alabama is full of big news stories. From the removal of the Confederate battle flag, to gay marriage, to Birmingham's increase in the minimum wage. It's a lot for journalists to keep up with and a lot of great materials for columnists like AL.com and The Birmingham News' John Archibald. He discusses the city, county and state politics in forums large and small.
