Thomasville-  By this fall Thomasville resident could see fewer bills in their mailbox. Action by city council could let residents bundle their utilities.  Starting this fall, Thomasville will offer residents a chance to receive phone services through the city. 

Monday night council will considered two contracts, one for long distance service and one with Georgia Alltel Telecom for local calls. Under the new service, resident would get one bill for all their utilities. 

"A lot of people have come to us and said,we really would like for you to offer phone service because right now we can write one check, get everything on one bill and the phone service is just a natural extension of that," said Lynn Williams, Thomasville Manager Customer Service. 

Rates for the new service have yet to be determined. Thomasville residents interested in the service can contact the city's customer service office. The service won't begin until fall.
