Aimee Madden-City of Cedartown Public Information Officer
Cedartown, Ga. – April 8, 2014: The City of Cedartown will be taking part in “Georgia Cities Week,” a state-wide celebration that showcases the contributions and services of local government.
The official state-wide celebration begins on Monday, April 13, and ends on Saturday, April 19. Locally, a special event called “Celebrate Cedartown” has been planned for Thursday, April 17, from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. The free event, hosted by the City of Cedartown and sponsored in part by the Cedartown Kiwanis Club, will take place at City Hall. Equipment from the City’s Police Department, Fire Department and Public Works Department will be on display. Residents are invited to come out and get an up-close view of some of the City’s most important service vehicles. A bouncy house will be provided for children and free popcorn and water will be served.
“We’re very proud of our city and the services we provide that make it attractive to residents and visitors. Our fire department and police department work around the clock to make sure you and your family are safe – and we want you to help us celebrate those facts,” said Bill Fann, Cedartown City Manager. “Cities provide the services and infrastructure to help businesses grow and set the stage for events where families and individuals can gather as a community. We extend an invitation for you to come out to this event, meet some of our great city staff, and ‘Celebrate Cedartown’ with us.”
The Cedartown City Commission will also issue a resolution at their April 14 meeting that honors the efforts of Georgia Cities Week. Also during this meeting, a special video featuring Cedartown elementary school students will be debuted. The video was created as a way for local children to “think like a commissioner” and answer the question: What Would You Do if You Were City Commissioner?” The video offers both serious and humorous suggestions from our city’s smallest residents on how to make Cedartown an even better place to call home.
