Fines for blowing leaves in the gutter increase tenfold after flooding

Macon-Bibb County Commission also agreed to hire Georgia Department of Corrections offenders for work details


The Macon-Bibb County Commissioner increased the fine for blowing leaves into the gutter from $25 to $250 after recent flooding issues.

During its Committee of the Whole and regular session, commissioners also agreed to hire Department of Corrections offenders for local work details and distributed grant funds for programs combatting domestic violence and local Community Development Block Grants.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s meetings at City Hall which also included a public hearing about abandoning some right-of-way property at First and Pine Streets and selling the land.
