Road Closure of Coastline Road; between Lees Lake Rd and Ellens Ridge on October 15, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. thru 5:00 a.m. on October 16, 2015. Thru traffic access will be limited but available to residents on the road.
Fayette County Public Works Department will be closing Fairmont Trace in the River Park Subdivision to thru traffic from October 5th thru October 16th. The existing pavement on Fairmont Trace, Briergate Place and a small portion of Eastin Road will be removed on October 5th. The portion of the road base on these roads are requiring extensive repairs that will be done the following days after the road pavement surface is removed. Once the road base repairs are completed the new pavement surface will be placed on each road.
It is the goal of the County to allow residential traffic in the construction work zone. Residents need to expect delays due on days with heavy construction activity and the Public Works Department will assist with supplying traffic flaggers on these days.

As the dog days of summer draw to a close, it is a great time to take stock of household water usage over the past summer and throughout the year and make simple changes that will help save both money and water in the future. October, in particular, is the right time to do both as the state of Georgia once again sponsors a tax-free weekend for the purchase of WaterSense and ENERGY STAR labeled products with a sales price of $1,500.00 or less. Products for noncommercial home or personal use will be exempt from state and local sales taxes Friday, October 2, through Sunday, October 4, 2015.
Replacing a standard showerhead with a WaterSense-labeled one can save thousands of gallons of water a year. Replacing an old toilet with a water-efficient one will save more than two gallons a flush. Besides saving money on the sales tax, residents who purchase a WaterSense-labeled toilet may qualify for a rebate. Details about which utilities offer rebates, either directly or through the Metro Water District are available at www.northgeorgiawater.org/toiletrebate.
To search for WaterSense-labeled products, visit www.epa.gov/watersense/product_search.html.
Visit Fayette County Water System at www.fayettecountyga.gov/water/helpful_hints.htm for other strategies for reducing water use. Then, be sure to take the water conservation pledge at http://www.mydropcounts.org.
