Ask The Mayor
Q. - As I sit and listen to the scanner and
notice yet another major accident with serious injuries at the intersection
of 205 and Colquitt, I wonder why we don't put a stoplight there? Is
this within city limits? Not long ago a 16 year old girl lost her life
at the same intersection.
Who would we contact to get this accomplished?
