Florence Mayor Andy Betterton said that despite the cancellation and criticism from the community, Tatum Designs has been very understanding about the whole process and said the company could still submit an update. website when the city is ready.
“They were courteous and professional throughout this process, and I appreciate their work,” said Mayor Betterton. “Like any other professional design consultant, the City invites them to submit a proposal for updating the website when the City is ready to move forward.”
