Compliment for the Staff

We recieved a great compliment this week through our Facebook page.

Resident Patricia Meador wrote to us: "Your street maintenance department is wonderful. They have always responded immediately when I have called to point out trouble shooting areas on my street! Kuddos to them!"

Most of the time all we hear is the bad stuff and that's understandable. If you walk in a room and turn on the lights you don't usually run to the phone and call the electric company and say thank you. You only call if the lights don't work. 

We know it is the same way with the City, which is why we get excited when someone sends us a positive note like Mrs.Meador.

I know our staff works hard every day for the residents of Athens and it is good to see their hard work recognized. 

See you next week,

Mayor Monte Montgomery
