There have been considerable improvements made
at Mile Branch Park off the lower end of S. Jackson. Many know this area as the old State Park or
the COunty Landing.
This area is for the public use however; a FREE
permit IS required if you want to have a large gathering of people or occupy the pavillions. This
is free but the permit requirement is in place to insure there will be no quarrels concerning who
should be there at any given time.
There are a number of local ordinances have
been instigated. Read all the signs posted and be aware.
This is a nice spot to get together now so
let's all work together to keep it clean, and make it a good place to take you're family. READ the
signs posted all over and if you have any questions after that call the Sheriffs Office at
Law Enforcement Merger
Effective July 1st., the Pulaski County Sheriff
has consolidated law-enforcement services with the City of Hawkinsville. The Sheriff and
staff welcome the former police officers into the "fold" and look forward to a team effort
that will lead to improved services in both jurisdictions through more efficiency and ending
the duplication of many services. Such has been the nature of having two agencies working
independently in the community. There will be difficulties at the outset but team spirit and
a cooperative effort from all members will make the transition, though challenging, rewarding
in the future.
Many counties are watching what is happening here
during what some might describe as an upheaval, but most realize that the consolidation of
services is an avenue many are going to have to eventually consider. State and Federal
unfunded mandates, litigation, liability and many other factors are going to make it more and
more difficult to maintain separate entities performing similar and sometimes identical tasks
in smaller counties and even in larger towns and cities. Macon/Bibb are presently studying
making some efforts as an example.
Yes I am afraid 'tis true. Effective July 01 we
must "buckle up" even in the 'ol pick-em up truck. This was destined to come with the passing
of Tom Murphy. But think about it folks. There are just about as many pick ups as cars on
Georgia highways. The truth is that an awful lot of lives will be favorably affected by this
adjustment in the law.
Buckle up and be safe out there.
Restraint in Georgia
Effective July 01, 2011 the
child restraint laws in Georgia have been changed.
The Child Restraint Law in Georgia has changed in an attempt at
reducing death and serious injury to children 7 & 8 years old. The law previously exempted
children over the age of 6 irregardless of other considerations. The law now requires that ahildren
under the age of 8 are exempt from requirements that they be placed in a booster seat only if they
have achieved a height of 57 inches. In making this height requrement Georgia joins 30 other states
in trying to reduce the seriousness of injuries and in many cases death.
Car crashes are still the leading cause of death
for children 3- 14 years of age.
A form is available at the Sheriffs Office
requesting extra patrols for persons leaving their residence for an extended period of time.
These forms are presently available at the Sheriffs Office at the Courthouse and will be
available at the 911 Center on Lumpkin St. very soon.
