Sole or Five Seat Commission

Is 5 greater than 1 or is 1 greater than 5?  That is a question citizens of Walker County will need to make regarding the way the county is ran.  Will we continue with a sole commissioner or swich to a five commissioner government?  We will make that decision on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

On September, 25th at 6:30 PM the Wilson Road Neighborhood Group will host a Town Hall for residents at Ridgeland High School on Happy Valley Road at Georgia Highway 2.  Citizens will be able to ask questions and get answers from both sides of the question.  We have invited current Walker County Commissioner Shannon Whitfield, Dade County Commissioner Robert Goff, Mike Cameron, Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson, Walker County School Superintendent Damon Raines and others.

Below is the letter to call the special election.

Please make plans to attend and help decide the future for Walker County.

STORM SHELTER USED TO PROTECT RESIDENTS
Our storm shelter was operational during the storms the week of April 3, 2017.  These storms gave the impression of severe damage and our residents were protected.  WDEF News 12 WDEF-TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee published a story about our community and our wonderful storm shelter.
