BOC to Vote on Changes to Soil Erosion Ordinance at Thursday’s Meeting


DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – The Dawson County Board of Commissioners will hold the first of two public hearings regarding changes to the Soil Erosion Ordinance required to ensure compliance to state regulations when they hold a regular meeting Thursday, Nov. 2, at 6 p.m. in the Dawson County Government Center, 25 Justice Way in Dawsonville.

A second public hearing is scheduled for Nov. 16. The changes are mostly in the wording of the ordinance and will have minimal impact on the current ordinance.

There will also be a public hearing on an update to the Dawson County Emergency Services Prevention Fee Schedule. The fee schedule imposed by the Fire Marshal’s Office has not been updated since it was approved in 2005. Changes in the fireworks law and additional services now being offered through the Prevention Office require updates.

  • A SPLOST VI Apparatus Replacement Proposal to approve the lease purchase of fire and emergency equipment, with a maximum annual payment for seven years, not to exceed $75,035.00 at an interest rate of 2.44 percent;
