Remembering 2015: Hometown Heroes are found in Moultrie

Mayor Bill McIntosh Mayor Bill McIntosh

The City of Moultrie's employees are being recognized as Hometown Heroes, as second graders from around the county get a behind the scenes look at how the city works.

Representatives from the police and fire department, public works, and utilities set up displays around the courthouse square today. 

Students participated in demonstrations, allowing them to fully appreciate the service these men and women provide.

"When they get up in the morning and turn on the lights, somebody's responsible for that electricity. Somebody's responsible when they turn the water on to brush their teeth so they have water. If they have a problem, a fire, somebody has to be there to address all these needs," said Mayor Bill McIntosh.

The Hometown Heroes event was part of Moultrie's involvement in Georgia Cities week to celebrate the community.
