City Hall will be closed on Monday May 25 in observance of Memorial Day.

ALSO....We will be flushing ALL of the fire hydrants in Comer on May 28 and 29.  You MAY see some discoloration in your water when we do this.  We will do the best that we can to prevent this from happening, but it is extremely difficult for us to control this.  Thank you very much for understanding and being patient with us.


CORONA UPDATE  May 22, 2022  4:05 pm

Gov. Kemp announced that Georgia reached its lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients hospitalized and that number is at 986.  He stated that Georgia has seen an approximate 12% decrease over the last week with 1,125 patients hospitalized on May 12 and a 34% reduction from 1,500 patients hospitalized on May 1.

As most of us saw there were some positive COVID-19 cases at our local nursing home, however, only one patient was hospitalized and that patient as of earlier today was not in ICU.  We pray for that person and all positive cases to recover. Here is a fact that we must remember as we talk about what we "hear".....according to Dr. Toomey from the Governors Task Force, you may test positive for COVID-19 and have absolutely NO symptoms and no idea that you have COVID-19. She stated that some people could test positive and never show the first sign.



CORONA UPDATE May 19, 2020   11:35 am

On a conference call today Dr. Toomey announced that there were 995 positive cases of COVID-19 in the state of Georgia.  This is a milestone because it was the first time that the number of cases fell below 1000.  She indicated that wearing masks and especially hand washing was a major contributing factor of the numbers dropping.

All of our local numbers come from either EMA or the county Health Department.  The city does NOT report numbers of cases whether confirmed or not.

City Hall is open should you have questions or if we can help you.  We ask that should you need to enter City Hall, that you please wear a mask for your protection as well as City workers.

Thank You


HYDRANT FLUSHING!!!!!!!!!!  May 19, 2020 11:45 am

The City will flush ALL fire hydrants on May 28 and May 29th.  You may experience some discoloration in your water that will be temporary.  Please try to help us on those two days and do not water gardens or your lawns if possible during the hours of 9:00 am till 3:00 pm.  



The City of Comer will continue with payments and collections of Water Bills just as normal.  If you have been affected by COVID-19 from the standpoint that you have been laid off or if you have lost your job you may submit a letter to the Mayor and City Council for consideration of allowing you to make payments on your water bill or to allow you to extend your due date.  Your request must contain proof that you have lost your job in the form of a letter from your previous employer or some other documentation from your employer.  If the reason for you not paying is NOT directly related to COVID-19, the request will not be considered.
