As a former mayor of Birmingham, short and smiley Dorothy Conrad is widely known for civic activism.Named Birmingham-Bloomfield First Citizen for 2014, she was a prime force in establishing the Baldwin House senior tower, where she lives in the city's downtown. But Conrad, 88, has been told that she must move out – now.In a letter dated Sept. 21, she was given no reason but told to leave in 30 days. Although Conrad is paid up on her rent, and always has been, she received two written notices saying her lease won't be renewed.
