Meeting time change

Municipal debris removal

The council agreed to participate in the Municipal Debris Removal Program. According to statistics, debris removal after natural disasters can run into the millions of dollars. Alabama Municipal Insurance Corporation has developed a program to help offset some of the cost of debris removal. The town would, along with other cities and towns, contribute an annual set amount to the program fund, and those funds would reimburse a portion of the cost for debris removal. The council approved participating in the program.

In other business, the council:

  • Approved a contribution in the amount of $750 to Randolph County Economic Development Authority.
  • Tabled a request for a donation to Randolph County Historical Museum until further information can be obtained.
  • Welcomed Trey Moore as a new officer of Wadley Police Department.
