The Hartselle City Board announced that opening bids would begin on a new roof on the morning on March 21 for a local Hartselle city school.

Hartselle Intermediate School has had issues with a leaking roof for — . Wilson joked about the amount of buckets from Hartselle Lowe’s that had been purchased since the rainy season began in January.
“I bet employees of Lowe’s know our principal by name now and have buckets laid out and ready for him to buy when he comes in,” Wilson told members of the board. “We won’t have to worry about buckets anymore once this process is finalized.”
