Mayor Tommy Battle is commending Alabama Senator Richard Shelby for his leadership in the Congressional appropriations process to secure funding for programs that benefit national defense and federal activities in Alabama, including the construction of a $110 million federal courthouse in Huntsville.

“The federal courthouse, a legacy project for Huntsville, would not have been possible without the leadership of Senator Richard Shelby,” said Mayor Tommy Battle. “He has worked diligently for decades to secure this much-needed facility for Huntsville to serve North Alabama.”

The proposed site for the new courthouse is a vacant parcel of city-owned property on the northwest corner of Lowe Avenue and Gallatin Street.
