 Down Trees and Power lines

There are trees down throughout the city, some involving live power lines. Georgia Power cannot respond until the high winds pass. Call 911 to report wires and trees down. DO NOT call 911 to report power outages. The rain and wind is expected to continue for the rest of the evening and into tomorrow morning. PLEASE shelter in place.

Tomorrow morning when it becomes safe for our crews to use equipment, the City’s priority will be to get trees out of the roadway. Later in the week, we will remove debris from public spaces. Residents and businesses will need to prepare debris from private property for collection during regular service days.


We anticipate that inspectors and the building official will be in the field assisting with assessments of damaged properties.  It is likely that permit applications for all but emergency repairs will not be accepted until Monday, September 18, 2017.
