Veteran Marker Committee:

The first meeting of this Committee will be held on Tuesday, March 6, at 4:30 p.m. at the Public Works Red Fowler Building, 2450 Main Street.  See our Veterans page for more information.  THIS MEETING WAS CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF A QUORUM.

Veteran Markers Moving:

It has become increasingly dangerous for our employees to place markers on SR120 and Pleasant Hill Road. Because of this danger, all markers on SR 120 and Pleasant Hill Road will be moved to other locations over the next 12 months.  Please be understanding that the City places safety for its employees first.  We will do our best to contact everyone who is affected by a marker being moved.  The first group of markers to be moved will be those on SR 120 from the Methodist Church west to SR 23.  Those markers will be placed on SR 23.

Gas Line Replacement:

Atlanta Gas Light (AGL) has finished replacing gas lines in the Norman Downes neighborhood.  They will begin work in another area at this time.  This project will take several weeks, depending on the weather.  Residents should receive information posted on door hangers.  AGL will repair any damage to yards and streets that are affected.  Old lines are being abandoned and phased out for new lines to provide more dependable, long-term service.  The City is working with AGL and will monitor the work to ensure any affected roads are repaired correctly. 

AGL will be working on gas line replacement for the following streets next: 

Ardmore Court
