The Georgia State Assembly approved funds that will allow the W. H. Stanton Memorial Library expansion project to move forward. The City’s SPLOST funds from 2012-2018 totaling $500,000 along with the approved state funding have made this project possible. We are grateful to Representative Bruce Williamson, Senator Burt Jones, and Governor Deal for their support. The City is also grateful for the assistance of library Board Members, the Mayor and City Council, and active community residents including Wayne McMillan, Dr. Allen, and many others.

It’s tax season and scammers are continuing to prey on people’s fear of the IRS and paying taxes. Citizens are reporting calls coming from Lake Charles, LA from the phone number 337-516-0542 claiming to be with the IRS and demanding payment for taxes that are owed and threatening to send the local police department to arrest them if they don’t.
If you receive a call like this, just hang up.

We apologize for the confusion that the appearance of the new bills may have caused. Next month’s statement will have the City of Social Circle identified on the return address and the statement will be changed to make it easier to read.
The image to the right is a sample of what next month’s utility bill will look like. The portion at the bottom shows the return address that will show through the window on the envelope clearly identifying The City of Social Circle. (Click on the image to see a larger version.)
We appreciate your patience and your comments on the new bills as we transition to our new system.
All utility bills were mailed on Tuesday, March 13.
In order to ensure the accuracy of the bills as we send them out on the new system for the first time, we delayed sending out this month’s utility bills on the schedule we originally published. We do regret any inconvenience the delay may have caused and to allow you time to pay this month’s bill, we have extended a grace period between the due date of March 29th and the assessment of late fees on April 3rd. Late fees will be applied at the close of business on April 3rd.
The bill format is also in an interim stage. Next month you will notice a significant change in the look of the bill which is designed to make it easier to read and to compare with your usage history.
The new financial software and utility billing system will move Social Circle forward with technology and open up new opportunities for us to serve you better.
Thank you for your patience. Please feel free to call us at 770-464-2380 should you have any questions or concerns.
