Governor Robert Bentley is scheduled to meet Friday with local pastors about the closed George Washington Carver Memorial Gardens.
The Birmingham cemetery closed suddenly in September and the owners filed for bankruptcy in October.
The closure left residents with loved ones buried at the cemetery and custoerms who had already paid for plots wondering what would happen next.
Rep. Juandalynn Givan is encouraging anyone who has paid for a plot to fill out the proper forms to be considered a creditor in the bankruptcy proceedings.
Givan released a notice that she will hold another town hall meeting Tuesday, Nov. 5 to discuss the closing. She says there will be volunteers available to assist residents in filling out bankruptcy claim forms. That meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the gym of Jackson-Olin High School, located at 1300 Avenue F, Birmingham, AL 35218.
The governor's office has been looking into the issues.
Residents are advised to file a B10 proof of claim form in the case using case #13-04509.

Claims should be mailed to the United States Bankruptcy Court, Northern District, Robert S. Vance Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, 18000 5th Avenue North in Birmingham, AL 35203.
Givan is asking people to attach the Certificate of Ownership with the claims for those people who have one. The proof of claim deadline is on February 3, 2014.
