Demopolis Mayor Mike Grayson will hold a town hall meeting April 8 where he will touch on topics facing the town and solicit questions from citizens.

Grayson said he was working to honor a campaign promise of openness and accessibility.

Expected to be one of the hottest topics of discussion will be a question and answer session regarding the city’s acceptance of coal ash leachate from the Perry County landfill.

Currently, Demopolis is testing and processing coal ash leachate for Perry County. However, a Florida based attorney has notified the city of his intent to sue the Water and Sewer Board over an expiring permit and the Board’s failure to reapply for the permit within a required timeframe.

Also up for discussion will be the city’s efforts to occupy a soon-to-be empty New Era Cap Co. building.

Grayson said he also wanted to speak to the importance of returning local census forms and at the conclusion would accept questions from those in attendance.
