"The First Georgia Marble City"

                                LATEST NEWS

Due to the storms that occurred last night there are trees down.  We are aware of the problem and are working diligently to get everything cleaned and cleared up.  Please be safe and do not hesitate to contact City Hall with any questions or concerns.

Important Information:
**Attention all City of Nelson Sanitation Customers**
It is very important that everyone get their sanitation accounts paid up to date or service will be shut off.  After going through past due accounts last week it seems that too many people are falling dangerously behind.  The customers that pay monthly rather than quarterly are fine as long as the payments are coming in.  There are customers who are three or more months behind and this cannot go on.  The City of Nelson is proud to offer trash service to its citizens at a lower cost than any of the surrounding companies however we can do not do this for free.  Please call or come to City Hall with any questions or concerns.


The city is aware of late night activity in the park area and has notified proper officials as a safety precaution.  The city will be taking steps to increase the security and safety of the community, including installing cameras and limiting use of the park after dark.  If you observe anything suspicious, please call 911 immediately so that the authorities can properly handle the situation.
