Rep. Marshall can be reached toll free

Residents can now dial a local number to reach the Macon office of Congressman Jim Marshall, a Democrat who represents Georgia's 8th congressional district. The number is 678-625-8221.

The telephone line is set up at City Hall, but calls roll directly to Marshall's office, which would normally be a long-distance call from Covington.

Marshall's office will be responsible for all fees associated with the line.
