Statement from Tuscaloosa Mayor Walter Maddox on the Passing of Former City Engineer David Griffin:

I am saddened by the news of David Griffin’s passing. David cared about the City of Tuscaloosa; it showed in his unwavering service to the people of Tuscaloosa for 34 years. For generations to come, David’s work will continue to improve the quality of life of countless neighborhoods, corridors and communities throughout our city. He will be missed.

My wife, Stephanie, joins me in sending prayers to his family and friends.

There will be a moment of silence at tonight’s City Council meeting in honor of Mr. Griffin’s life and dedication to this great city.
