*******COMER CHRISTMAS PARADE 2020********

As you know when a large production takes place, it takes planning several months in advance.  In order to have the Christmas Parade, planning and decisions would have to be made immediately for vendors, etc.   Because of the situation that our State is in with Carona-19 and because there are a lot of unknowns especially as far out as December, the Mayor and City Council of Comer has made a decision to err on the side of caution and cancel the Comer Christmas Parade.  It was a decision that the Mayor and Council knew would create some concerns and disappointment.  However, in keeping with the guidelines given to us by our Governor, Madison County Department of Health and Georgia Municipal Association we would ask that you understand that the decision was out of sheer caution to the citizens of Comer and those who would visit for the parade.  The City will install our Christmas Decorations just as normal.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support.


The City will perform hydrant flushing on ALL Fire Hydrants on September 21 & 22, 2020.  Be prepared for possible discoloration for those two days which is normal.  We have heard from a couple of you that indicated that you were having some discoloration.  We are aware and thank you for letting us know.  We are flushing a couple of hydrants all weekend this weekend (Aug 21, 22 & 23) to help eliminate this problem.  Several things can cause this....could be the fact that school is back in and usage has gone up which COULD cause the water to reverse direction which would stir the line up. COULD be that because we have had a good bit of rainfall, the rainwater could have stirred our wells up.  Aesthetically we realize that the water doesnt look good, but I have been advised by our Water Operator that it is NOT harmful to drink or to use in cooking.  The city is doing everything we know to do to eliminate this issue.  Should you have some discoloration, sometimes you can allow a faucet to run approx 10 minutes and it should clear.

Let us know if we can help you in any way but we are working diligently to clear our lines.




-August water bills will be sent out by close of business on  Aug 20.  ALL Bills are due by the 10th of the month.  If you have a past due amount owed, please make arrangements to pay that immediately.


-Because of the Governor's updated guidelines and for the protection of our citizens and employees, you must have and wear a face covering when conducting business inside the city hall.  We are sorry for any inconvienence, however, it is for all of our protection.  Thank You for understanding.




The state has released its first set of CENSUS 2020 numbers and Comer leads all of the citys in Madison County and close to 87%.  Please, if you havent already, complete your Census 2020 form and get it mailed in.  The National Census has shortened the time period to get the forms tunrned in by 30 days.  Please try hard to get your form in by the last day of August.  Every Comer Citizen matters and each Census Form for the citizens of Comer means money for our city. 


***Please do not pile limbs up at the end of your property unless you have contracted someone to come and get the limbs for you.  The city does NOT pick up limbs and neither does AAA Garbage Service.

***Water Bills are DUE by close of business on the 10th of the month.

***If you have a Tax Bill that has not been paid from 2019 or any years prior, you MUST contact Comer City Hall to make arrangements to pay those past due bills by October 1, 2020.
