Huntsville will host mayors from Alabama’s 10 largest cities Jan. 9-10. The mayors will discuss the upcoming regular session of the State Legislature and the recently passed federal infrastructure bill, among other topics.

The Big 10 Mayors is an extension of the Big 5 Mayors group started in 2014. At that time, the mayors of Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa united to create a strategy for developing better relationships with legislators and improving their cities.

“These gatherings have been an integral part of keeping Alabama moving forward,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “We recognize the impact policies crafted at the state level have on our cities and communities, and as leaders of local governments we remain close to the people and know what our cities need and what will and will not work.”

Maintaining and improving Alabama’s infrastructure has long topped the Mayor’s list of collective concerns. The Big 10 Mayors include Mayor Battle, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, Montgomery Mayor Stephen Reed, Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato, Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba, Auburn Mayor Ron Anders, Decatur Mayor Tab Bowling and Madison Mayor Paul Finley.

Following Monday’s meeting, the mayors will discuss their priorities at an 11 a.m. news conference.
