DOUGLAS COUNTY BOC REMINDS CITIZENS HOW THEY CAN HELP COUNTY PATCH POTHOLES


Douglasville, Ga. - Douglas County Commission Chairman Romona Jackson Jones and the Board of Commissioners would like to remind the citizens of Douglas County there's a way the community can help the county find some of the worst potholes in the county. "We have many ways citizens can contact us if they want to report seeing a pothole somewhere," Chairman Jones said. "We want to make it easy for motorists to alert us to poor road conditions they come across driving through Douglas County."

If you know of a pothole or know of poor road conditions, you can visit www.celebratedouglascounty.com and click on the icon in the lower right corner that states Submit Citizens Concerns or Questions or call the County Department of Transportation at 678-626-0158 or email roadconditions@co.douglas.ga.us.

The Douglas County Communications Department wants to remind everyone it is against the law to text and drive, so please wait to contact us when you're not driving.

During winter weather season, potholes often are created due to freezing weather conditions combined with fluctuating temperatures along with wear and tear from constant traffic.

The Douglas County Department of Transportation staff is working feverishly to patch potholes around the County when they can. "We are receiving phone calls from citizens about potholes needing to be repaired, but we could use the help of citizens letting us know of the larger ones they might come across," said Director of Communications and Community Relations Rick Martin.

For further information, you can contact the Communications and Community Relations Department at 770-920-7303.
