Birmingham City Council moves forward on dome plans

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Birmingham City Council is moving forward with plans for the domed stadium.

On Tuesday, the council okayed 160-thousand dollars for some preliminary work on the domed stadium. The council approved three invoices dealing with architects and for planning expansion work for the BJCC.

Executive Director Jack Fields told FOX6 News last week that if the council failed to act, work on the domed stadium would come to a halt.
