Battle: City running smoothly in face of furloughs


Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle said despite massive furloughs on Redstone Arsenal, things are running smoothly in the rest of the city.

The mayor spoke at the groundbreaking for a new Davidson Technologies facility. He said his team is keeping a close eye on the situation and will be ready for any unexpected problems that may pop up.

"We started trying to check and see if there are places where we're missing something. So far we're in good shape, we haven't seen any changes coming to Huntsville, but eventually there will be some trickle-down," said Battle.

Battle said the administration and Congress need to figure out how to talk to each other and compromise before things get any worse.
