Community landfill meetings
— An Easter sunrise prayer service will be held that Sunday, April 5, at the county landfill on Lower River Road. “If approved by the Newton County Commissioners, trash from all over the state of Georgia will be coming to our town of Newton County/ Covington, Georgia,” said a statement issued by the organizers. “We have met and talked and voiced our opinions but now it’s time to PRAY. It is time to come together on one accord as concerned citizens, elected officials, and members of the BODY of Christ.” Interested parties are urged to call 404-693-4914.
— The Newton Conservative Liberty Alliance will also host an open meeting Monday to discuss the county landfill and ways that a solution might be reached to solve the county’s solid waste problems. The event will feature Tonya Bechtler of the Yellow River Water Trail and Brenda Mullins of the Springhill community, as well as an open comment portion and discussion. The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Washington Street Center.
