NELSON, GEORGIA

"The First Georgia Marble City"


Christmas in Nelson


Come join us Sat. Dec. 14 from 2-5 at City Hall. Santa and Mrs. Clause will be here... Crafts for the kids, hot cocoa and lots of goodies.






Just a reminder to PLEASE lock your doors and secure your vehicles left outside.  Thieves struck in Forsyth County a couple of weeks ago and were able to steal three vehicles because the owners left them unlocked with the key fobs inside.  Guns and expensive electronics are also a favorite of these thieves, so PLEASE remember to bring in your valuables.

 

This is also the time of year when the scammers are hard at work.  They are using the Holidays to pull at your heartstrings and separate you from your cash.  PLEASE remember…if someone is calling and wants you to pay a debt with gift cards, it is a scam.  If someone calls you and tells you that there is a warrant for your arrest, but you can clear it up by buying gift cards or (this is a new one) go put money into the machine in the lobby of the jail.  That machine is there to put money on the account of an incarcerated person, NOT to pay off a warrant.

If something sounds fishy, or too good to be true, trust your instincts and don’t fall for it.

 

Please pass this along to your friends, family and neighbors and anyone else you think would benefit from this information.

 

Happy Holidays, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all y’all.

 

 

 

Lt. David Simmons
Cherokee County Sheriff's Department

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.

Important Information:




****

*NOTICE: City of Nelson's Cherokee County Residents will pay their 2019 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.

What You Can do Before Severe Weather Strikes

5. Have a NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards receiver unit with a warning alarm tone and battery back-up to receive warning bulletins. 

6. National Weather Service (NWS) watches and warnings are also available on the Internet. Select your local NWS office at: http://www.weather.gov/organization.php …or go to the to the NWS Home Page at http://www.nws.noaa.gov 

7. Listen to commercial radio or television/cable TV for weather information. 

8. Check the weather forecast before leaving for extended periods outdoors. Watch for signs of approaching storms.
