During Monday’s meeting, the Scottsboro City Council discussed dedicating part of South Broad Street to Dr. Wayne Patterson, who died in a biking accident on June 29.

The portion of South Broad Street proposed would be from the intersection of Alabama Highway 279 and Alabama Highway 79 to Ida Moody Road, about a two-mile stretch of road.

Due to this being a state highway, if the city council were to pass this item next week, it would be under the motion to send out a resolution to State Sen. Steve Livingston, who would then take the resolution to the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) for approval.
