Columbus Day 2018
Columbus DayOn October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus was the first European to discover the North American continent, which was referred to as the New World at that time. His discovery was the beginning of what would become later, our great nation, the United States of America.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday in 1937. It was originally observed annually on October 12th, but in 1971, the observance day was changed to the second Monday of every October. Today, the holiday is dedicated to honor Christopher Columbus’s achievements and celebrating our Italian-American heritage. 

In observance of Columbus Day, our offices will be closed on Monday, October 8th, 2018. If you experience a water related emergency during this time, please call 706-649-3400.  Emergency crews will be available to assist you.
