The City of Selma mourns the loss of its Landfill Director, Mosezel Williams. He passed away this week.

Williams worked nearly 12 years of dedicated public service to the department, staff, and citizens of Selma and rose to the title of Landfill Director.  City officials say they lost a dear friend and valued colleague.

Selma Mayor James Perkins Jr. said city employees called Williams ‘Mo’ and said everyone enjoyed working with him.

“He was an absolute joy to work with,” Perkins said. “He was definitely a team player and stayed on ‘go’ to meet the challenges of his position.

“On behalf of the city employees who labored beside Mo, we express our sincere condolence to Mo’s wife, family, friends, and all those that encountered his infectious personality. We grieve with you and you are in our prayers.”

City Personnel Director Liz Rutledge said “Mo ‘Mo’ mentioned many times how much he enjoyed working with this team. He will be deeply missed.”

Williams graduated from Stillman College in the late 1990’s and is a member of Phi Beta Sigma.
