"Macon A Difference" Fair Set for February

The City of Macon is preparing a resource fair that will teach organizations and volunteers how to serve the community better.

The event is called "Macon A Difference", and it will be held Feb. 1-2 at the Macon Centreplex. It will be open to the public.

Mayor Robert Reichert introduced the goals of the project during a press conference on Tuesday.

He said the city wants to collaborate with existing nonprofits and identify their niche areas of focus to pair them with other nonprofit organizations in order to help the city better deliver services to people in need.

Several organizations have signed up for the event, including: United Way of Central Georgia, Volunteer Macon, the Macon Housing Authority, Unity-N-Community, the Macedonia Church and Awakening Fires. 

Council Passes Landfill, Storm Water Management Projects

At Tuesday's Macon council committee meetings, members approved two major projects and tabled two others. And there seemed to be an emerging theme for the evening. 

On several initiatives, members said they wanted to wait until after the consolidated government takes place to make a decision. 

Council members agreed to let Macon Water Authority oversee the storm water management system. Sales tax money will fund the $7 million project. 

Members also supported a $15 thousand landfill planning project. An engineering firm will assess the landfill and create a strategic plan.

That includes recommendations on managing methane gas and a recycling system.

Members tabled a contract with the Georgia Department of Transportation on state highway maintenance and liability. The proposal would've cost $600-thousand.

CGTC Lady Cougars are on the Prowl

Under the direction of second year head coach Fala Bullock the Central Georgia Tech Lady Cougars are off to the best start in school history.

Wednesday, conference number one,  Darton comes to town looking to sweep CGTC but Coach Bullock and her crew have other plans in mind.

Two of the Darton players that Coach Bullock has on her radar, are no strangers to Central Georgia. Northside's Jasmine Wilson and Dodge County's Michelle Mitchell are starters and big time contributors for the visiting Lady Cavaliers.

Game time is Wednesday night at 5:30pm, men's team will follow.
