MOULTON — Moulton and the Lawrence County Commission received a $241,000 grant Friday from the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs to convert City Hall into a senior center.
Moulton Mayor Ray Alexander said Moulton is contributing the building and the commission is providing the $25,000 match as part of this Community Development Block Grant.
Moulton plans to renovate the old Bank of Moulton building on Lawrence Street into a new City Hall. Alexander estimated the roughly $250,000 project will be complete in March. The city is moving the mayor's office, police and water departments and all city functions to the new site.
Alexander said the new City Hall gives the city about three times more space and a fireproof records vault, while keeping city government's presence downtown.
The grant allows the city and county to have six months to open the Commission on Aging's new senior center. Preliminary drawings call for a building renovation that will include a kitchen and dining area.
