April 2020 Mayor & Council Meeting

UPDATE Mon April 6, 2020 (2:55 pm)

Thank You to all of you that are paying your Water Bill by using our drop boxes.  We are emptying the boxes 4-6 times a day to make sure we get your payment in as quickly as we can.  New bills will be sent out the week of the April 20th....not sure exactly which day.

Remember....restaurants are TAKE OUT ONLY in Comer.  Please support these businesses if you decide to not cook.  I am certain they will appreciate your business.

The CDC is recommeding that you wear an appropriate mask anytime you have to be out in public.  They certainly are recommending that you not go out in public unless it is absolutely necessary, but if so an appropriate mask is important.  

Remember, if you have any problems, City Hall is open for service but NOT to the public.  Please call if we can help you at 706.783.4552.


UPDATE Mon April 6, 2020:

As we all continue to "Shelter In Place" the city would advise you to be extremely cautious if you HAVE to go out.  If you MUST go to any store, PLEASE make sure that you maintain at a minimum of 6 feet between you and anyone else.....especially when you are in line.  Officials are estimating that this week and next week COULD be the worst weeks for Georgia.  Please do your part in helping this virus be defeated!

Please call City Hall if we can help you!  706.783.4552



In light of the Governors recent order, the Mayor and Council have decided to cancel the Mayor and Council Meeting on Monday April 6, 2020 at 6:00 pm.  Our wish is to not only comply with the Governor order, but to protect the citizens and employees of Comer.  The meeting will be rescheduled at a later date as soon as it is appropriate and safe to do so.

We applogize for any inconvienence but hope that you understand and agree.
