It’s $11 million or so. What’s $11 million to BMLL? Birmingham is made of money.

I’m in favor of pay raises for cops and firemen. I’m just saying that Langford seems to find money everywhere, and I can’t imagine everyone else just missed it.

$75 K and he gets a clean resume

Board, Mims settle dispute- al.com

Stan Mims gets seven months pay, is allowed to resign, and will get a neutral reference for future employers. Not too bad for someone fired for fraud and gross incompetence.
