Fayette County Fire and EMS, in partnership with the Georgia Overdose Prevention, Fayette Cares Clinic, and In Ryan’s Name, installed a metal box containing the drug Narcan. The box is located at Fayette Care Clinic on Bradford Square in Fayetteville. The box is open and accessible to the public at any time.
“Fayette County is not immune to the opioid overdose epidemic our Nation is currently enduring. This is evidenced by the number of opioid related emergencies our units routinely respond to. Our crews, and law enforcement officials, have been successful in reversing the effects of opioids in many of these incidents by administering naloxone (Narcan). Unfortunately, there are patients whose condition deteriorates to respiratory failure, and eventual cardiac arrest before the medication can be administered,” Scott R. Roberts, Assistant Chief and EMS Director said.
“Naloxone is proven to be effective in reversing overdoses caused by opioids, including synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. The key to the effectiveness of this medication is early administration during an overdose. This can be achieved by bystanders who have acquired Naloxone through one of the resources available. However, due to the stigma associated with drug use, cost of the medication at pharmacies, denial of addiction, and other reasons, a small percentage of the high risk to overdose population have it available,” he said. “The addition of the Naloxone box at the Fayette Cares Clinic, provides people who are high risk to opioid overdose a resource to the life-saving medication 24/7, in a discreet location. The hope is many will take advantage of this resource and have naloxone available to administer as soon as an overdose is suspected, drastically increasing the chance of survival. We are honored to have partnered with In Ryan’s Name, Fayette Cares Clinic, and Georgia Overdose Prevention in combating the opioid epidemic by providing this valuable resource,” Roberts said.
This live map has locations listed of where to find other boxes. Doreen Barr, In Ryan’s Name founder and president will insure the box remains stocked with the medication.
The Fayette County Board of Commissioners marked the completion of the Camp Creek Phase 1 Path Project with a ribbon cutting.

The community was able to walk, bike and ride the path before and after the ribbon cutting.
Fayette County, GA - The Fayette County Water System is replacing 32,000 water meters that have reached their end-of-life with state-of-art Ultrasonic Meters manufactured by Badger Meter, USA. The project, kicked-off February 1st , is expected to be completed at the end of 2025 with help from the installation contractor, Pedal Valves, Inc.
As part of the metering system upgrade, customers can access an application, Eye0nWater, a user-friendly phone or computer application that allows access to water usage data on an hourly basis. The new tool allows customers to set up notification alerts for potential leaks or excess water usage to help avoid water loss leading to unexpectedly high bills. Ultrasonic meters have no moving parts increasing the longevity and accuracy of this infrastructure.
“The Fayette County Board of Commissioners chose to allocate a portion of the County’s American Recovery Plan Act funding to this multi-million-dollar infrastructure investment that benefits most County residents for decades to come. We remain vigilant in meeting the challenges of source water protection, water conservation and community education while continuing to provide safe drinking water to everyone in the community,” Vanessa Tigert, Water System Director said.
Project notification letters are being sent to all Fayette County Water System customers in advance of the meter installation. Water System staff are working closely with the contractor to ensure a seamless customer experience during the meter upgrade.
This project will improve water usage, billing, and potential leak notifications to residents and businesses. In addition to supporting environmental stewardship, this project will enable Fayette County Water System to provide enhanced customer service and improve operational efficiencies.
For more information about the project and the capabilities of the new meters, we invite you to visit our website at www.fayettecountyga.gov/water.
Fayette County, GA - What are the responsibilities of a planning commission? How do special use permits work? These and other topics were covered during a Planning and Zoning Training hosted by Fayette County on January 30. Appointed board and commission members, local government staff and elected officials from various Georgia counties attended the training.
The training was led by the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government. The goal was to develop participants’ knowledge and skill in planning and zoning basics.
“This class is absolutely instrumental to my entrance as a planning commissioner. Without this class, I would not be empowered nor proficient to the assigned tasks the city of McDonough has entrusted me,” Rev. Eric Calhaun said.
“There’s a need for this type of work,” David Lane of Newton County said. “It is interesting to hear the perspectives of all the participants in the class.”
Deborah Bell, Fayette County Planning and Zoning Director said the class is beneficial to those working with zoning.
“The class is an excellent introduction for new commission members and zoning staff and a good refresher for long-time members and staff. State legislative updates often affect zoning matters, and it is essential that staff follow those procedures,” she said.
Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services responded to Long’s Mobile Home Park, located at Long’s Mobile Home Park on the 200th block of Rivers Road for a reported residential structure fire with possible entrapment of two occupants.

Come “Create your Story” with us, as we create a safe community for you.” Fire Chief Jeffrey Hill
The roundabout at the intersection of Redwine Road, Bernhard Road, and Peachtree Parkway is open to traffic. Roundabouts are a proven safety countermeasure over stop-controlled intersections with lower vehicle speeds, less delay, less conflict points, and a reduction in air pollution due to less idling time. When compared to traditional signalized or stop-controlled intersections, roundabouts have been shown to substantially reduce severe and fatal crashes by an average of 80 percent.
Maneuvering roundabouts is as easy as 1-2-3 – Slow Down, Look Around, and Be Ready to Yield. For all vehicles and bikes, the traffic flows counterclockwise in a roundabout and traffic already in the circle of the roundabout has the right-of-way. Slow down on approach and watch for pedestrians, bicycles, and golf carts. Yield to any traffic, including bikes, already in the roundabout and then be prepared to yield to pedestrians and golf carts in the crosswalk as you exit the roundabout. The Federal High Administration’s (FHWA) "Rules of the Roundabout" video is available here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peUf2NRdWxs.
Additional work for the multi-use paths is ongoing, no additional detours or lane closures are expected. Exercise caution going through the area as drivers adjust to the new traffic control.
The Fayette County Tag and Tax Commissioner’s Office held a ribbon cutting ceremony for its remodeled offices on January 11. The office reopened with a fresh, new look on January 5. Tax Commissioner Kristie King cut the ceremonial ribbon, adding, “This could not have happened without a lot of teamwork from the county. I’m loving it, the staff is loving it, and so are the citizens. We are so happy to be here with our new countertops, our fresh paint, and our new floors.”
December 22, 2023 - Fayette County, GA - We’re pleased to report that the intersection of Redwine, Bernhard, and South Peachtree Parkway is open and functioning as a roundabout.
Additional work is still planned for the multi-use paths but there are no more detours or lane closures. Exercise caution going through the area as drivers adjust to the new traffic control.
Fayette County, GA - The holiday season brought extra cheer to the Fayette County Animal Shelter. The Tax Assessors’ Office staff held a donation drive benefiting the Animal Shelter. The staff is grateful for various departments who donated to the drive. Reginald Jordan, Acting Animal Control Director, received the donations on behalf of the Animal Shelter on December 22.
Fayette County, GA – A sweet reunion might not have been possible if it wasn't for the quick action of a group of Fayette County first responders. A couple recently got the chance to thank the medics and fighters who saved their baby's life.
On Nov. 12, Fayette County received a 911 call about a 7-week-old premature baby who was not breathing and was possibly in cardiac arrest.
The firefighters arrived to find the baby turning blue and not moving or breathing.
The team got to work immediately and was able to quickly resuscitate the infant and rush him to the hospital.
"There is never a more intense emergency call than when a child’s life is threatened," the Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services wrote on Facebook. "We are just glad these professionals were there and gave this story a happy ending."
“This is a great story to highlight the work our responders perform everyday for the community,” said Jeff Hill, Fayette County’s Fire Chief.
After the baby boy had recovered, the family reached out to thank the crews for saving their son's life and had the chance to meet the group again.
Installation of an all-way stop at Old Greenville and Goza Road
The intersection of Old Greenville Road and Goza Road was converted to an all-way stop intersection on November 30, 2023. The change was made to address the trend of increasing crash rates at the intersections over the past few years. Signs, rumble strips, and paint marking were installed to help alert drivers of the change. This improvement was successfully completed in house by Fayette County’s Road Department. Staff will continue to monitor and track crash rates as well as the impact of the all-way stop on traffic flow.
Activation of traffic signal at Tyrone Road and Flat Creek Trail
The existing all-way stop at Tyrone Road and Flat Creek Trail was converted to a traffic signal on December 8, 2023. No new turn or thru lanes were added. The intent of the project is to improve traffic flow on Tyrone Road, especially during the AM and PM peak hours. Although additional turn lanes may be required in the future, Fayette Count elected to implement this relatively fast and low-cost improvement to address the growing traffic volumes through the intersection. The project (17TAL) was funded through the 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). The signal and associated signs and striping were installed by Lumin8 Transportation Technologies, LLC., the Fayette County Road Department, and Coweta-Fayette EMC. Signal timing and traffic flow is being monitored and adjustments will be made after a few weeks of operation.

Fayette County encourages its citizens in patriotic tradition to recognize the importance of honoring all those who made immeasurable sacrifices to preserve freedom by displaying a green light in a window of their place of business and/or home.
Fayette County, GA – October 27, 2023 The Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG or Georgia’s Counties) awarded Fayette County officials with certificates for completing requirements in the ACCG Lifelong Learning Academy. Recipients were presented with their achievement certificates during the 2023 ACCG Legislative Leadership Conference at the Jekyll Island Convention Center in Glynn County. Commissioner Charles Oddo was honored for successfully completing the Intergovernmental Relations specialty track requirements in the Lifelong Learning Academy. Anita Godbee, Parks and Recreation Director, completed the Quality of Life/Social Issues track. Jeff Hill, Fire Chief and Katye Vogt, 911 Director, completed the Public Safety track.
“I am pleased to have accomplished another level in the continuing education provided by the Association of County Commissioners of GA. ACCG programs provide a source of real-life, professional experience that participants can draw on to better their own public service skills. Since being elected, I have been proud to be a proponent of continuing education not only for our Commissioners, but for our staff as well. The insight we all gain from participating translates into better service to our Community, which in the final analysis is our purpose for what we do,” Commissioner Oddo said.
ACCG and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia have collaborated for more than two decades to provide county officials with supplemental training and educational tools in the Lifelong Learning Academy. With abundant courses from which they may choose, every county official has a tailor-made learning experience that allows them to excel in specific areas of expertise.
“The Lifelong Learning Academy is critical to educating county officials about the challenges they may encounter in public service,” said Dave Wills, ACCG Executive Director. “County leaders who prioritize furthering their education are better equipped to address those challenges and are assets to their communities. I commend Oddo for his unwavering dedication to understanding his community.”
The Lifelong Learning Academy was created with input from county commissioners who identified courses based on the issues and decision-making challenges regularly faced by county officials. To ensure the course requirements and curriculum remain relevant and engaging, the ACCG Lifelong Learning Committee – comprised of county commissioners and staff from both ACCG and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia – meet regularly to review and adjust accordingly. Through this collaborative approach, the Lifelong Learning Academy has been successful in equipping county officials with the necessary skills to meet the needs of their constituents.
Fayette County, GA – The Fayette County Animal Shelter was awarded the "We are a NO-KILL Shelter" award from the Best Friends Animal Society in recognition of achieving a 90% save rate or more of the animals in the shelter. To be considered “No Kill,” a shelter or rescue must have a live release rate of 90%.
"We have been “No Kill” by definition since 2018. Fayette County Animal Control maintains a 96-98% live release rate annually," Jerry Collins, Director, said.
"Fayette County has a small shelter compared to other organizations surrounding us. Our current shelter has space for 26 dogs and 40 cats. Keeping the high-live release rate has been a community achievement, thanks to the many rescues, volunteers, and the hard-working staff at Animal Control," he said.
"Staff has been very creative in utilizing the space available and working within the policies and procedures set forth to keep animals safe and in a clean environment. Since 2018 the Fayette County Board of Commissioners and Administration have been strong supporters of Animal Control with increased funding in key areas such as medical and cleaning supplies. They even set up a special fund to pay for spay and neuters of any animal that leaves the shelter so that any animal adopted from our shelter is already spayed or neutered. They also have funded the building of a new shelter which should be complete in early 2024," Collins said.
"I know that this success would not have happened without all the hard work of all involved. I often say it takes a village to achieve great things. From where I stand, the village is strong and successful," he said.
Best Friends Animal Society is a leading animal welfare organization founded in 1984. They work to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters by 2025.
October 19, 2023 - Beginning Monday November 6, 2023, portions of the Redwine Road, Bernhard Road and South Peachtree Parkway intersection will be closed to thru traffic. Road closures are required due to the amount of grading and storm pipe installation needed for construction of a roundabout. Depending on the travel direction, drivers may have to follow a detour around the closed segment(s). The detour period is expected to last approximately four weeks, weather permitting. To minimize traffic impacts, the closures are planned in two phases, each having its own detour.
If the work proceeds as planned, all legs of the intersection will be open (no detours) during the week of Thanksgiving.
Access will be maintained to all properties during the detour period, including One Church, located at the southeast corner of Redwine Road and Bernhard Road. In addition, the contractor plans to maintain passage for pedestrians and golf carts using temporary gravel paths.
Once complete, the roundabout and new path crossings will reduce traffic delay and improve safety. During construction the road closures and associated detours will be impactful to drivers and neighboring communities. Please allow extra time when driving through the area and use caution to help protect the workers, pedestrians, golf carts, bicyclists, and other drivers. The school system is aware of the pending detours and is making plans for their buses. We are working closely with the contractor to provide current and accurate information to the public and will issue updates as appropriate. For questions, please contact Fayette County Public Works at 770-320-6010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project (17TAL) is funded with Fayette County’s 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) program. Please visit the SPLOST website at https://fayettecountyga.gov/splost-2017/ for more information.
Projects listed in the current Pre-disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan were recently reviewed.

August 4, 2023 Fayette County, GA – The Fayette County Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce the completion of the new Fayette County Board of Elections and Voter Registrations building located at 175 Johnson Avenue, Fayetteville, GA, 30214. The new location will be open for business on September 11, 2023 at 8 a.m..
The Fayette County Elections and Voter Registration Department will be fully operational at 140 Stonewall Ave. West, Suite 208, Fayetteville, GA, 30214 until September 8, 2023.
“Our new facility offers us the opportunity to better serve our voters,” Brian Hill, Director of Elections and Registration, said. “We look forward to continuing to serve our county’s election needs and work at our new location.”
(Fayetteville, GA) – Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the successful audit of Fayette County’s election infrastructure, both software and hardware, in preparation for the 2023 municipal elections and 2024 Presidential elections. In coordination with the Fayette County election office, the Secretary of State’s office recently conducted health checks of the voting system, finding that Fayette County’s election infrastructure remains secure, unaltered, and fully functioning as Georgia heads into a major election cycle.
These health checks are in conjunction with Secretary Raffensperger’s Four-Point Secure The Vote Plan for the 2024 election. That plan includes:
Testing before the election (Logic and Accuracy Testing)
Each and every piece of voting equipment, in all 159 counties, is tested to assure each contest is voting properly, by testing every candidate and ballot position on the Ballot Marking Devices, and that all scanners are reading ballots properly.
Testing during the election (Parallel Monitoring)
Live election equipment will be randomly selected and tested during the active voting period, every day of voting from the start of early voting through Election Day. This testing will detect any active, ongoing threat.
Voter review and accountability
Since 2020, Georgia voters have had the ability to review their own ballot for accuracy before turning it in for tabulation. In 2020, the University of Georgia conducted a study of Georgia’s live elections and found that more than 80% of Georgia’s voters review their ballots.
Testing after the election (Risk Limiting Audits)
With the passage of HB 316 and SB129, Georgia now has robust post-election audit procedures in place to detect any anomalies in the outcomes of elections.
These election equipment health checks are part of the greater election security initiative launched by the Secretary of State Raffensperger’s office to administer the most secure elections in the Country. Georgia’s election system consists of multiple layers of security, robust audit procedures, and thorough function and diagnostic testing prior to any election. The Secretary’s top priority is election security, with 100% voter-verified paper-based elections, 100% photo ID, and a 100% commitment to accurate and trusted elections.
Additionally, the Secretary of State’s office is partnering with the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies to ensure that all 159 county election offices are safe, secure, and held to the highest physical security standards possible.
Fayette County, G.A. – Fayette County started the construction phase of the roundabout project at the intersection of Redwine Road, Bernhard Road, and Peachtree Parkway.
The intersection, currently an all‐way stop, will be a single lane roundabout with multi-use paths along all approaches to the intersection. Each approach will have a pedestrian/golf cart crossing. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and traffic flow for vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, and golf carts.
The initial phase of construction includes clearing and utility relocations. This work is underway and will continue through May 29, 2023. Periodic lane closures may be necessary, but no major traffic delays are expected during this phase.
Physical construction of the roundabout and multi-use path system will begin on or after May 30, 2023, and will continue through early 2024. No full road closures are anticipated during construction of the roundabout; however, travel delays and occasional, temporary lane closures should be expected when traveling through the work zone. Motorists are asked to exercise caution, reduce speed, and allow for additional travel time for trips in the area. Temporary traffic control signs will be in place advising drivers of construction work, traffic shifts or restrictions.
This project, along with the adjacent path project currently under construction along Redwine Road, are funded by the 2017 SPLOST.
For additional information, please contact Fayette County at 770-320-6010 or SPLOST@fayettecountyga.gov.

Fayette County, GA - In the next few weeks, Fayette County property owners will be receiving assessment notices reflecting the value placed on their properties for ad valorem tax purposes. What will not be shown on these notices is a property tax credit of approximately $500 on homesteaded properties.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed into law on March 13, 2023 a one-time Property Tax Relief Grant to refund $950 million in property tax credits back to homestead owners. This will be accomplished by reducing the assessed value of Georgia homesteads by $18,000. The actual amount of the tax credit is determined by applying the county’s millage rate to the $18,000 reduction in assessed value.
The Fayette County Commission holds regular meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 5:00pm in the Administrative Complex located at 140 Stonewall Avenue West, Fayetteville, GA 30214.
