DOTHAN: This morning I spoke with Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz who reported he was in a Dothan hospital following an accident in Idaho.
Mayor Schimtz, his wife Sandy and their son were in Idaho on vacation this past weekend and first part of the week. He was expected to return on Thursday. Mayor Schmitz was on on a ATV and was involved in an accident. He suffered a broken collar bone and broke ribs and injuries in the accident. The medical treatment providers wanted to do surgery.
The Mayor and his family decided to return to Dothan for the surgery and medical treatment. He is in patient at Flowers Hospital in Dothan. The Mayor's wife Sandy is his primary caretaker at the hospital.
Mayor Schmitz wanted to notify that he is doing well but will be under doctors care in the hospital for several days. He sounded in good spirits and sounded like he was doing okay.
RICKEY'S NOTE: For information call the Mayor's Office if you have specific questions. We will update as we learn but he probably does not need a lot of phone calls or visits at the hospital. He is there to get better and I know people mean well but he does not need a lot of visitors. The number to the Mayor's Office is 334-615-3111.
