April 17, 2014

Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon said he was made aware of details of the plan on Monday, but was disappointed he or other OrangeB each officials weren’t in on the talks or planning for a new facility.

“I don’t know how to comment because we were not included in the discussion about the so-called Orange Beach-Gulf Shores High School,” Kennon said. “We were not involved in the planning. Supposedly it’s been going on for two years, as he said. It’s amazing that they kept it away from us for two years.”
