**Latest News**    



The general public is hereby informed that a proposed 2019 Fiscal Year Budget for the City of Nelson, Georgia is available for review at Nelson City Hall, located at 1985 Kennesaw Avenue, Nelson, Georgia and that a public hearing shall be held on the 2019 Fiscal Year Budget on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 7:00pm at City Hall, 1985 Kennesaw Avenue, Nelson, Georgia.  For information, please call 770-735-2211.

The City Wide Dumpster Days total was 12.33 tons.
That means that 12.33 tons of garbage has left the City. 
This is reason to celebrate. 


Just a reminder...
Parking on sidewalks is not allowed. We realize that this time of year means family and friends will be visiting but please pull the vehicles out of the way. This has been becoming a problem and creating safety problems for both drivers as well as those who walk. Children need to be able to safely travel to their bus stops. If this continues, we will be forced to take further action to rectify the problem.  Thank you all for your time and consideration.


Important Information:


*NOTICE: City of Nelson's Cherokee County Residents will pay their 2017 City Property Taxes when paying their Cherokee County Property Tax Bill to Cherokee County. This is due to a consolidation agreement between Cherokee County and the City of Nelson.  By doing so it reduces the paperwork, saves on cost and provides easier processing.
