Call Before You Dig

Should you plan to dig around buried piping, especially buried gas piping, the piping should be located in advance and all digging should be carefully done by hand in the vicinity of the pipe. You must contact the Georgia One Call Center at 800-282-7411 (or 811) three days before any digging by you or your contractor so that all buried cable may be located. This is a free service. Flag colors and what they represent: red: electric power lines, cable, conduit and lighting cables; orange: telecommunication, alarm, or signal lines, cable or conduit; yellow: natural gas, oil, steam, petroleum or other gaseous or flammable materials; green: sewers and drain lines; blue: drinking water; purple: reclaimed water, irrigation, and slurry lines; pink: temporary survey markings, unknown/unidentified facilities; white: proposed excavation limits or route.

Underground Gas Pipe Maintenance

Underground Gas Pipe Maintenance

As your natural gas distributor, the City of Social Circle is required, in accordance with federal regulations, to make you aware of certain safety recommendations regarding your underground natural gas piping. The City of Social Circle operates our gas system with an emphasis on safety. We are required to design, operate, and maintain our underground natural gas pipeline system in accordance with prescribed federal safety standards.

The gas department does not maintain the gas piping downstream of the gas meter. This is the responsibility of the customer who owns that piping. If the buried pipe is not properly maintained, it may be subject to corrosion (if the piping is metallic) and/or leakage. To ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of these lines, the buried piping should be checked periodically. You (or the building owner) are advised to contact a licensed plumber or heating contractor to assist you in locating and inspecting your buried gas piping. If any unsafe condition is found, repairs must be made ASAP. The Yellow Pages are an excellent source for listings of licensed plumbers and heating contractors.

If we can answer any questions regarding this notice, please call Social Circle City Hall at 770-464-2380. You may disregard this notice if you do not have buried piping beyond the gas meter.

Having Trouble With Your Utility Bill?

Having Trouble With Your Utility Bill?

Several of our utility customers (water, gas, sewer, sanitation) have had issues with their bank's Bill Pay feature resulting in late fees by the city. This convenient feature of the Bill Pay takes the responsibility of [mailing] a physical check to the city for bill payment. There are instances when the banks ability to cut and mail the check delays the payment of your bill, resulting in a late fee.

We want to help you avoid this by offering a better option -- Bank Draft with the City of Social Circle.

This is the most effective payment option, and uses the exact same information that appears clearly on your Bill Pay checks.  It simply electronically transfers money from your bank to the city's bank -- avoiding any, and all, delays brought on by bank processing and mailing. Just ask your bank representative, if you aren't convinced.

If there was ever a time to use the city's Bank Draft feature -- it is now!

If you:

    1. Download the Bank Draft Form
    2. Fill it out
    3. Bring it into the City Hall Drive-Thru
    4. Pay your utility balance down to $0.00
    5. We will waive your last late fee penalty with the city

We have over 2,200 utility customers, and many of them pay with Bank Draft. Join them today, and make life easier for yourself!
