We would like to thank all our City Employees in every department for the way they pulled together and worked through hurricane Matthew. Our utility crew is dedicated, diligent, and experienced, always, on the job. The amount of time it took to make repairs was further decreased due to City of Monroe, Georgia sending in an extra crew to help. We appreciate those utility employees leaving their city and homes to come help us in our time of need more than we can say.
Matthew wreaked havoc on much of our City and County. Working as a team, we accomplished a lot, quickly, after the storm subsided. By Saturday evening, after the winds continued to blow throughout the morning, we had restored an estimated 85% of City customers with power with the exception of some major service repairs still to be completed.
We thank the public for their patience, support and kind remarks! So many volunteered, made calls and prepared and brought food for the employees working.
At times like this, you see the best of people and the worst of people. As is very common and traditional to Sylvania and Screven County, when we have any kind of crisis you immediately see the best in our people. We are indeed a “great place to visit, but a better place to live!!”
