Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle presented the keynote speech at BID Designs’ quarterly BID Select luncheon, held at The Ledges in Huntsville. This event serves as an opportunity for BID Designs clients to network among themselves and to gain insight on the government contracting community.

Mayor Battle addressed clients on the steps Huntsville is taking to remain a smart place to live, work, and play. These steps include strengthening accountability in schools, keeping roadways safe and efficient for traveling, and diversifying Huntsville’s economic base by creating more jobs.

“A smart city is team-oriented. We talk in one voice and work as a team,” Battle said. “We have good things happening, good prospects for future jobs, and a good community — one that I am very proud of.”
