Chris England of Tuscaloosa, ...

Chris England of Tuscaloosa, also said that he would support a bill that shifted the municipal election away from August.

"I think it's viable," said England, who works in Tuscaloosa's Office of the City Attorney when the Legislature isn't in session. "It doesn't address the entire problem, but it's a start."
England said shifting the election to March does not bring clarity to the question of which state agency is ultimately responsible for enforcing the residency requirements. That's another issue that needs to be addressed.
But England was more passionate about dealing with the state's shortfalls in mental health funding, which tied into the Tuscaloosa City Council's legislative request that the state cease the practice of requiring municipalities to offer services without providing the necessary funding.
Maddox's request for support on this issue led to a discussion of mental health services in Tuscaloosa. England joined in, pointing out that waiting lists for mental health services prevent those who need these kinds of treatments - especially those who recently have been released from jail - from reaching those who need them the most.
"If you can't take care of your citizens unless there's a case of a dire emergency, then you're not taking care of your citizens," England said. "I'm hoping we can all kind of coalesce around the (issue) and say enough is enough."
The mayor joined in with England to decry the lack of available mental health services available and called on Tuscaloosa Fire and Rescue Service Chief Alan Martin to describe what options are available to first responders when they receive a call involving a person with mental health issues.
...
England was even more direct and said that, at some point, the state could be sued and forcibly compelled to address the problem at a higher cost to the taxpayer.
"We are reaching crisis levels," England said.

That, the chief said, is not typically the ideal place for them.These stories run counter to those told by state mental health officials to the Legislature, Maddox said, adding that the number of residents arrested and re-arrested by Tuscaloosa Police officers is "astounding."Better mental health facilities and services from the state could help alleviate that, the mayor said."I'm not sure," Maddox said, "the (Alabama) Department of Mental Health truly paints an accurate picture of what is happening at the local level."England was even more direct and said that, at some point, the state could be sued and forcibly compelled to address the problem at a higher cost to the taxpayer."We are reaching crisis levels," England said.
