Dougherty County will now be brighter

October 29, 2007

Dougherty County -- Several areas in Dougherty County will soon be out of the dark side.

Street lights will soon be installed at un-lit intersections and residential communities throughout the county.

The lights will be placed at 44 intersections and 12 residential corners.

It will take at least six months for the new lights to be set up and working.

"Public works has gone through the un-incorporated area where there are very few street lights at intersections to try to improve safety, especially when its dark and raining. And than also in residential areas at dark intersections to try to improve safety," said County Administrator Richard Crowdis.

The lighting improvements through out the county come after numerous complaints at town hall meetings over the past year and half.

Power will be supplied by Mitchell E-M-C and Georgia Power.
