Public Works Crews Out & About


City street crews have been painting curbs, improving crosswalks and sidewalks, and upgrading handicap accessibility. These improvements help to facilitate pedestrian movement throughout the downtown area.

You may have also noticed our Water Distribution and Sewer Collection teams repairing and upgrading drinking water and sanitary sewer lines throughout the city. They've also overseen the installation of several hundred feet of new 6" water main along Happy Hollow Road.

Our Solid Waste workers and grass cutting crews continue to keep the City looking good and were instrumental in preparing the downtown area for celebrations like the 4th of July.

The Wastewater Treatment Plant employees continue to keep the City in compliance with state regulations and are preparing for the 2016 plant upgrade that will ensure adequate capacity for decades to come.

Public Hearing Notice State of Georgia’s Annual Action Plan Federal Fiscal Year 2015/State Fiscal Year 2016

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) is currently preparing the Federal Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Action Plan that details how the State proposes to use the resources during the State Fiscal Year 2016, which begins July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.

The Plan covers the federal funded programs requirements from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME); Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG); and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Programs. The Consolidated Plan describes Georgia's existing housing conditions and how state, local, private and federal resources will be used to address the identified needs during that five year period.

A key component in the successful development of the Annual Action Plan is the citizen participation process through which the State receives public input and direction on the state's housing and community development needs. The State has scheduled three public hearings to solicit citizen input. Download more information HERE.
