Technicians Flushing Hydrants Around the City

You may see technicians in different parts of the city this week flushing hydrants as part of their normal periodic maintenance of the water distribution system.  This will improve taste and odor throughout the system.  If you notice that your water has a slight tint to it, this is temporary  and will clear up.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Walton County Tax Assessor Appraiser Visitation Schedule

From the Tax Assessor’s Office:

APPRAISER VISITATION SCHEDULE

NOTICE TO WALTON COUNTY PROPERTY OWNERS AND OCCUPANTS

In accordance with O.C.G.A 48-5-264.1, please be advised that the Walton County Appraisal Staff or Authorized Walton County Tax Assessor Representative may be visiting your property to review your parcel information concerning an appeal filed, return filed, construction of new improvements or additions, review of parcel, conservation use application, and personal property verification. This includes all residential, manufactured homes, commercial, industrial, and exempt properties.

The City of Social Circle properties will be visited from July 18, 2019 until October 31, 2019.

The Walton County Appraiser or Walton County Tax Assessor representative will have a photo identification badge and will be driving an appropriately marked vehicle. If there is any question about the identity of the appraiser or representative, do not hesitate to contact our office at 770 267-1352.

This appraiser or representative does not set values at the time of their visit and will only gather the necessary property information including exterior measurements, various coding, exterior photos, etc. The appraiser/representative will ask questions concerning the interior characteristics. Collecting this information does not normally require an interior inspection. Interior inspection and measuring would only be requested to properly gather the correct square footage. Answering any questions and complying with a request for interior inspection is purely voluntary on the home owners or occupants’ behalf. Otherwise, an estimate of interior measurements and characteristics will be done from outside the structure.

If you have any further questions, please call the Tax Assessor’s office at 770 267-1352.

SCPD Launches Get with the #9PMRoutine

The Social Circle Police Department is bringing the 9 p.m. Routine, an international crime prevention initiative, to Social Circle after a recent spree of entering autos that targeted unlocked vehicles in several local neighborhoods.

SCPD is recommending the following 9 p.m. Routine:

  1. Remove keys, wallets, cash, garage door openers and other valuable items from vehicles. Roll up windows and lock the doors.
  2. Bring in or secure all valuables in the yard.
  3. Close overhead garage doors and lock any outside garage doors.
  4. Close and lock doors on the house.
  5. Ensure all windows in the house are shut and locked.
  6. Turn on outside lights.
  7. Post that you’ve completed the #9PMRoutine on social media and tag #SCPD.

SCPD will be sharing 9 p.m. Routine reminders regularly on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to encourage all residents to Get with the 9 p.m. Routine to show potential criminals that you won’t tolerate property crime in your neighborhood.

Help spread the word using the hashtag #9PMRoutine and tagging #SCPD to let us know you’ve completed the routine.

The 9 p.m. Routine, created in 2017 by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office in Florida encourages residents to protect themselves from becoming victims of crime by locking and securing their homes, vehicles  and valuables every night at 9 p.m.
