“We’re very proud of our City and the services we provide that make it attractive to residents and visitors,” said Mayor Donnie Henriques. “Cities provide the services and infrastructure to help businesses grow and set the stage for events where families and individuals can gather as a community.”

Cities across Georgia will be celebrating Georgia Cities Week, sponsored by the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA), to showcase and celebrate Cities and the many services they provide.
