COVID-19 Update and Department Service Changes
The Transportation & Public Works Department will be open with limited operations the week of April 6-10. Buildings will not be open to the public; however, staff is available by phone or email from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Specific Division updates are included below.
Engineering: Permit applications can be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Staff will contact applicants when permits are approved and to make arrangements for payment. Please contact Erica Thomas with questions at email@example.com or 706-613-3440. The ACCGov Planning Department will continue with development submittals on an as-needed basis or by appointment in a modified lobby area in order to provide as much physical separation as possible. A staff person for Public Works will be available if any questions arise during submission. Please contact staff with submission questions prior to drop-off.
Land Development: Active construction site inspections will be conducted each day. There may be some delays due to reduced staff levels.
Traffic Engineering: For lane closures, please contact Mike Dunbar at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 762-400-7837.
Streets and Drainage: To report potholes, drainage issues, or a dead animal in the roadway, please call 706-613-3465.
