February 19, 2019
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have long sought to distinguish themselves as family-friendly spring break destinations, meaning they're not particularly receptive to mass partying by college-age visitors on the beaches or of disturbances of the peace in general. Both communities re-emphasized that stance after 2015, when disturbing incidents in another destination to the east, Panama City Beach, made national news.

Elliott introduces bill to roll back extraterritorial jurisdictions – Lagniappe Mobile

February 14, 2019
State Sen. Chris Elliott is sponsoring a bill to amend a 43-year-old law extending municipal police and planning jurisdictions beyond city corporate limits. Currently, police jurisdictions of municipalities with more than 6,000 people extend for three miles beyond their corporate limits while the police jurisdictions of municipalities with fewer than 6,000 people extend for one and one-half miles. Planning jurisdictions of all municipalities extend five miles beyond their corporate limits. Under Elliott’s proposal, both police and planning jurisdictions would be restricted to municipal boundaries.
