Streetscape Project Update
The Streetscape Project is continuing to make progress as conduit and pull boxes are installed on the south side of the square.  Towards the end of this week open cuts in the roadways are expected to be concreted back.  As work continues the sidewalk on South Chestatee Street adjacent to J.R. Crider's will be replaced and new conduit will be installed on East Main Street.  Streetscape crews begin work at about 3:00am most days in order to minimize the disturbance to traffic and pedestrians. 

Thank you for your continued understanding as these improvements are made to our city! Please feel free to contact City Hall with any questions.
Extraordinary Service Award

This month's Extraordinary Service Award goes to Troy Armstrong! Troy Armstrong works with the Street Department at the City of Dahlonega. Beginning his career with the City five years ago, Troy's first day on the job was on Saint Patrick's Day in 2013. Ever since then, Troy has time after time shown his dedication to the City. Troy's supervisor, Vince Hunsinger, describes Troy as, "Always willing to work overtime and weekends to keep things going." When a recent accident involving an overturned oxygen tanker truck occurred early on a Sunday morning, he was first on the scene. Troy and Vince closed four roads and worked together to reposition the oxygen tank truck with a backhoe to avoid additional leakage onto the roadways.

Troy thinks of his fellow department members as his family, and Dahlonega as his home. The only way Troy can describe Dahlonega is, "It's a great place.", and we couldn't have said it better ourselves. Congratulations Troy, thank you for serving our City so well!
