Stormwater
Only Rain Down The Storm Drain
The City is participating in the "Only Rain Down the Storm Drain" sticker program. The goal is to educate and alert residents not to dump pollutants in or near the stormwater drain. Stormwater drains connect to local waterways and anything entering the drain will pollute those waters. Stickers will be placed on storm drain inlets throughout the city . For more information, contact Sarah Nottingham at 478-988-2735.

New Assistant Finance Director
Mitchell Worthington started with the City of Perry on Nov. 26, 2018 as the new Assistant Finance Director. He graduated from Mercer University with a degree in Economics and Finance in 2011 and earned an MBA from Mercer in 2015. He began his career in local government at the Middle GA Regional Commission in Macon, GA where he worked from 2011-July 2016. From July 2016 to November 2018, he served on the Budget Team with the City of Roswell, GA. He oversaw the development of and adherence to the budgets of the Transportation, Environmental/Public Works, and Finance Departments.

Mitchell and his wife, Megan, are expecting their first child (a little girl) in May, 2019. Mitchell’s father was in the military, so growing up he lived in Colorado, Germany, Italy, Texas, and Alabama. He graduated high school in Cedartown, GA (where most of his extended family lives) and considers that “home”.  Please help us welcome Mitchell to Perry!
Police Department
The Perry Police Department recently extended their “No Shave November” campaign through the end of December for another good cause, this time close to home. Officers participating were allowed to donate additional monies to benefit Houston County Fire Chief Jimmy Williams who was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.  Perry Police Department female officers and female civilian employees voted for the “best beard” in the department. Cpl. Danny Manly, Officer Daniel Layson and Officer Gary Turley were the winners. Chief Steve Lynn presented a gift card to them. Anyone wishing to donate can contact Houston County Assistant Fire Chief Christopher Stoner.
