The City of Huntsville would like to express their sincere thanks to local business owner and operator Siraj “Jack” Ali who made $2,500 donations to the Police and Fire Departments Tuesday morning.
Ali, whose ten businesses are located throughout Huntsville and Walker County, said the $5,000 donation was in appreciation of the “wonderful job done” by the City’s public safety professionals during the last 20 years.
Ali said, “The City’s Police and Fire Departments have done a good job since I’ve been in business in this area.” He said, “I have never had any big problems in my stores, and any time there was an incident, the City worked with us to make sure it was resolved.”
Huntsville Police Chief Kevin Lunsford said he and Fire Chief Tom Grisham were very happy to have received the donations.
Chief Lunsford said the departments would explore several options to find the most beneficial use of the funding, but that any use would benefit the citizens of Huntsville.
