Social Circle Comprehensive Plan Coming Soon!

In the next few months, the City will be seeking public input on a Vision for the future of the City. With your input, the city will develop goals and a community work plan to support that vision. Look for more information on meetings, workshops, and other opportunities for you to share your opinions and suggestions on transportation, housing, economic development, infrastructure, community facilities, natural resources, parks and trails, historic preservation, and other topics of concern.

For more information contact Adele Schirmer, City Manager at 770-464-6901.

Winter Weather Preparations

City officials met this morning to plan for the winter weather expected this weekend.
This evening, city crews will salt the the main roads in anticipation of freezing temperatures and precipitation.
We will monitor the road conditions around town in the morning and throughout the weekend and spread more salt as needed.
Please stay off the roads for your safety and to ensure that emergency vehicles can respond to emergency situations.
If there is an emergency, please  call 9-1-1.

Welcome Center Closed

The Social Circle Welcome Center was flooded after heavy rains on Monday. The water came through the back and because the sump pump had ripped a breaker, the water flowed from the back all the way to the front of the Welcome Center.

There is no damage to any of the artifacts, but water soaked the rug and into the walls. The company hired to clean up is running a dehumidifier and fans to dry out the water. Some of  the walls may need to be replaced.

At this time, we think the Welcome Center may be closed to the public for about two weeks.

Bring One for the Chipper!

Once you have finished enjoying your Christmas tree, recycle it!

Bring it to the parking lot behind the Police Station and we will work with Keep Walton Beautiful to turn the tree into mulch that will be used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards.

Drop your tree off anytime through Saturday January 7th.

Bring One for the Chipper is Georgia’s annual Christmas tree recycling program. Each year, Keep Georgia Beautiful works with private sponsors to organize the recycling event. These statewide sponsors included The Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Georgia Forestry Commission and WXIA-TV. Numerous local sponsors and volunteers also make contributions and provide in-kind services across the state.

The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers. Since its inception, the program  has recycled an estimated 6 million Christmas trees.
