FANNIN COUNTY, Ga – Fannin County Commission Chairman issued a local state of emergency declaration following tropical storm Zeta.
The declaration cites Zeta as an event of critical significance that occurred on Thursday, October 29, 2020. The emergency requires “extraordinary and immediate corrective acts for the protection of the health and safety of the citizens.”
Fannin County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is activating the emergency operations plan. Also, the emergency management ordinances adopted by the county are activated.
Since Helton couldn’t reach the EMA center to physically issue the declaration, County Attorney signed the document for him with express permission.
The courthouse is closed today, but early voting is still taking place on the third floor.
City Hall is closed and the special called meeting tonight is canceled.
