Just a reminder...
Parking on sidewalks is not allowed. We realize that this time of year means family and friends will be visiting but please pull the vehicles out of the way. This has been becoming a problem and creating safety problems for both drivers as well as those who walk. Children need to be able to safely travel to their bus stops. If this continues, we will be forced to take further action to rectify the problem.  Thank you all for your time and consideration.

*NOTICE: City of Nelson's Cherokee County Residents will pay their 2017 City Property Taxes when paying their Cherokee County Property Tax Bill to Cherokee County. This is due to a consolidation agreement between Cherokee County and the City of Nelson.  By doing so it reduces the paperwork, saves on cost and provides easier processing.
