Possible salmonella outbreak after bean festival; Decatur City Council schedules vote on budget

Good Monday evening. Here's a check of the stories we're hard at work on for WAFF 48 News at 10.

We're continuing to follow an illness outbreak in Athens. Athens-Limestone Hospital officials confirm at least 33 people have come down with an illness. They tell WAFF 48 News that at least six of those people have undergone tests that confirm they have salmonella. Many of the victims ate at a Bean Day Senior Citizens' Luncheon this past Friday at Athens First Baptist Church. WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux will have more from a spokesperson at Athens-Limestone Hospital as well as a local physician in regards to this particular illness.

The Decatur City Council has decided to wait and consider the mayor's budget for the 2014 fiscal year. The budget proposed by Mayor Don Kyle is a $55 million budget. The council voted to delay its vote on the budget for two weeks.

And speaking of big bucks, we're investigating two burglaries at the same Tennessee Valley business totaling $2 million. The burglaries happened over the last two years at Matsu Alabama in Huntsville. We'll hear from a manager at the facility on what happened, who they suspect and how you can pocket a $10,000 reward by helping to solve this case.

We'll see you at 10!
