City officials for the first time in years are addressing chronic problems in an area of Winder that needs attention.
On Tuesday night, Winder Police Chief Dennis Dorsey reported several follow-up actions his officers have taken in the weeks since the department’s March 17 town-hall meeting at White Oak Springs Baptist Church.
Also Tuesday night, the Winder City Council voted unanimously to spend $2 million on a sewer infrastructure project that, among other things, will resolve an odor problem that residents of the Dreamland subdivision have complained about for three years.
Ward 2 Councilman Charlie Eberhart said after Tuesday night’s meeting that he is very pleased that the city government is investing needed police and financial resources into the area that he represents.
