Cramer employee visiting Moulton

MOULTON — A member of U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer’s staff will be at City Hall from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Tuesday offering help with federal government issues.

The service will be provided for Lawrence County residents who need assistance dealing with any federal agency and who may be unable to visit one of Cramer’s three district offices during normal business hours.

Common requests include assistance with Social Security, Medicare and Veterans Affairs.

“My office can help those from North Alabama cut through the federal bureaucracy and red tape and ensure that those who qualify for certain services and programs are receiving the support they deserve,” Cramer said.

“These office hours will give residents from Lawrence County an opportunity to speak to an individual from my office in person and obtain the help they need.”

Compost giveaway starts Wednesday

Weather permitting Wednesday, city trucks will begin hauling free compost to Wilson Morgan Park.

The compost will be hauled to the park’s small parking lot off Sandlin Road Southwest through Thursday, or as long as it lasts.

The compost is made up of decomposed grass clippings, leaves and brush that have been chipped up, windrowed and turned regularly.

The free compost is only for the private use of residents.

It’s available for free year-round at the landfill to residents who load it themselves.

Loading services cost $4 per ton and can only be used with trucks larger than one ton.
