City of Toccoa waives utility disconnects for non-pay for the next 30 days

In keeping with continuing recommendations from Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the Georgia Department of Public Health and the CDC, Toccoa City Manager Billy Morse requests that customers, when possible, select a method of payment other than in-person payment inside City Hall.

“Customers are encouraged to pay their utility bills using a variety of options without having to come inside City Hall,” Morse stated. “Options include using the drive-through, drop box, automatic draft, online bill pay and automated phone service.

“The health and well-being of our employees, citizens and customers is our highest priority” he said. “we are committed to providing essential services and maintaining public safety...and we are following CDC guidelines to keep our employees healthy so that vital utility and public safety services continue.”

In addition to changes in utility payments, all downtown and Ritz Theatre events scheduled for March and April are cancelled, and all case scheduled in Municipal Court have been cancelled through April 13. All cases will be rescheduled. Also, Ping’s Grill will be closed for the next two weeks.

“Every day brings more information and new challenges, Mayor Terry Carter said. “We want to make sure we’re protecting the health, safety and well-being of the community.
