City of Orange Beach purchases Coronavirus prevention and control training for employees

Posted

The City of Orange Beach has hired GreenCo from Foley to provide training on the proper way to clean and disinfect city facilities against the COVID-19 virus. Department heads will choose the employees that take the training.

During the May 5 Regular Council Meeting, the mayor and city council voted unanimously to spend approximately $2,000 on the training which consists of two training modules. The first module is free and the second module will be paid for by the city at a cost of $100 per participant.

Councilman Jeff Boyd spoke in support of the program.

“While this has been going on the biggest thing on everyone’s mind is safety. Not just the safety of what’s happening in the city but at the forefront in the safety with everyone coming to town. By far, we want everyone here, we want them back, we want the business back. But our number one priority is our safety, our employees’ safety and the safety of the people that are coming and their families,” Boyd said.
