Scenes from Top of the Ridge Car Show

25 Oct 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 



There were bigger events going on in Paulding Saturday than the Top of the Ridge Car Show but one might opine, there were none 'nicer' ... especially considering that politics pervades most things this time of year.

This event was put on by Mike Fritz and while the action was about as a laid back as you could get, partisan conflict was duly muted.

Among the candidates attending was Micah Gravley who spoke briefly to the crown and then talked about his current passion, passage of the Medical Marijuana legislation. Gravely, who represents District 67, was hawking tickets to the premier of a documentary on the efficacy of medical marijuana that is driving efforts under the gold dome for its legalization. He details the November 6 premier event set in Dallas at its historic theater. Watch the video for more details and we will add a link for online purchase of the tickets as soon as we get one.

Fine Arts Festival and Public Safety event offer residents unique opportunities

11 Oct 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 




Saturday Oct. 11th was a pretty day for many Paulding residents as the Fine Arts folks and Public Safety folks had events set to take advantage of the cool days in early October. It was an an interesting day that ended up with a lesson on why you shouldn't drink and drive at the public safety event. But take a stroll with us through the Paulding County Fine Arts fair and you'll see that Paulding County's folks do care for the arts ... We did see something that a lot of folks haven't in Paulding in some time ... Real Live Big D Democrats ... who were at the Arts fair challenging the status quo. I talked one such challenger, Sandra Fuller, who wants to debate Paulette Braddock, in the incumbent for District 19 Representative.

Leaving downtown Dallas and heading to the new county courthouse, the politicking ceased but the education began with one lesson offered being DON'T DRIVE DRUNK.

Overall, it was a good day in Paulding to almost blow you away.

For Paulding.com, G. Patton Hughes reporting.

Hiram Hires Code Enforcement Officer to Address Blight and Code Compliance

06 Oct 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 
Hiram Hires Code Enforcement Officer to Address Blight and Code Compliance
The City of Hiram welcomes a new addition to the Hiram team, Cliff McGrady, who will be assuming the lead role in our Code Enforcement initiatives.

While Hiram has many aesthetic attributes and curbside appeal, our City still has its share of blighted properties which, if left unchecked and not addressed, could become a prelude to social disorder and crime.  Research has shown that properties that are not maintained and left unkempt and blighted can contribute to crime.  Reason being, the lack of care and maintenance sends a message that the community does not have a vested interest in its appearance and, therefore, becomes more attractive to those who engage in criminal activity. Cliff McGrady - Hiram code enforcement The mission of code enforcement is to eradicate nuisances that contribute to blight, social disorder and crime. 

According to section 22-24 of the Municipal Code, “It is the duty of the owner of every dwelling, building, structure, or property within the jurisdiction to construct and maintain such dwelling, building, structure, or property in conformance with applicable codes in force within the city, or such ordinances which regulate and prohibit activities on property and which declare it to be a public nuisance to construct or maintain any dwelling, building, structure or property in violation of such codes or
  (Cliff McGrady)       ordinances.”

According to City Manager Robbie Rokovitz, “We are not looking to issue citations and bring violators of our Municipal Code to court to face fines and possible jail time.”  “To the contrary, we are seeking voluntary compliance with the local nuisance codes that apply to residences, businesses and vacant properties not maintained by absentee landlords,” continued Rokovitz. 

The first contact made by our Code Enforcement Officer will be to educate the property owner of the violation he/she may not even be aware of violating.  It is at that time the alleged offender is given an oral notice of the violation.  The alleged violator will be given a reasonable period of time to correct the violation.  If corrected and brought into compliance, the incident is documented with no further action.  If the violation is not remedied, a notice of violation is issued.  Again, the alleged violator is given a reasonable period of time to bring the property into compliance.  If not, the Code Enforcement Officer will issue a citation and assign a court date in which the alleged violator will have to appear before the municipal judge.  This court appearance can lead to a fine of not more than $1,000 and/or imprisonment for not more than one year.

Again, our goal is to seek voluntary compliance and ensure we maintain an attractive and aesthetically pleasing community where people want to live, work, play and retire.  The Code of Ordinances are available on the City of Hiram website, http://www.hiram-ga.gov.
