Velcro shorts ??? VELCRO ?
Im still trying to figure out why people think that the City Council & Board of Commissioners have something to do with the type restaurants and stores we have. People ......the demographics, household incomes, crime rate etc , will determine who comes here. These restaurants and stores have people that find places for them and they know what they are looking for. The City Council and BOC cannot be held responsible for that. Theres a time when people felt like we might be the next Gwinnett but were most likley going to become the next Clayton. Until the west side of the county is brought under control, crime wise, and the people here start electing qualified people to serve on boards and commissions and not voting for somebody just because they "seem like a nice person". Until things like that happen were headed downhill.
Good Job NCSO
To the people that keep blaming the City Council and the Board of Commissioners because Newton Co. does not have nice restaurants and nicer stores. You can thank the type people that are responsible for the activities detailed in the above report. Thats why you have all the fast food, title pawns and Dollar Stores here in Newton Co.
I got a headache just reading that one
To the very uninformed person that said that a large portion of Newton Co does not hold the City of Covington in high esteem. As a proud resident of the City of Covington I happen to personally know that: The City of Covington is the driving economic island in Newton County. The City of Covington is and has been for quite some time considered probably one of the best and most efficiently ran municipalities in the State. The Police Dept was the FIRST in the State of Georgia to be CALEA accredited that was in 1983 and they have maintained that status . The Sheriffs Office some 30 yrs later just reached State certification which pales in comparison to the CPD. CPD has majority college educated officers with many supervisors holding more than one degree. The City realizes the importance of maintaining quality employees they pay them more but in turn they expect more from them. For your information the evil City of Covington has covered more than its fair share of expenses in many joint projects that benefit all of Newton, public safety being the main one ! Your comment seems to center around the defeat of a CPD Captain for Sheriff. So it sounds like you want The City of Covington to stay out of the affairs of Newton County and stop picking up the tabs for programs that the County can not afford to fund , I would say be careful what you ask for........ you might get it !
The new real bright white lights on the Square hurt my eyes !! They are too bright !
God Job CPD
@covingtonian you are right sir...........we let stuff like that go on and then later parents are shocked that lil Suzy comes home with a baby in her belly. There is a culture among us that will be our demise if we dont make some changes.
