Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama for November 9, 2012...
- Mike talked with Brent Godwin with the Birmingham Business Journal
about the top business headlines. He discussed why as Jefferson County
hits the one-year anniversary of declaring the largest municipal
bankruptcy in U.S. history - largely because of sewer debts it couldn't
pay back - the commission has hiked sewer rate costs by more than 2.7
percent; how the new Target Corp. store is coming out of the ground now
at Brookwood Village, and that's got Colonial Properties Trust
rethinking plans for a second office tower; and how larger cities have
been picked nearly clean of the high-yield, low-cost multifamily
properties and now it looks like it's Birmingham's turn. For more on
these and other business stories, visit www.birminghambusinessjournal.com.
