Typically, one of the first orders of business for the chair of the Hall County Commission each new year is the delivery of a State of the County address. For 2021, Hall County Government has made the address a virtual event.
"Normally, you’d see me in person at your civic group meeting, Homeowner’s Association event or other gathering to deliver the State of the County," Higgins said at the onset of the presentation. "Like most things in our lives, this is going to be a little different this year. We’re presenting our State of the County as a video presentation for citizens to get an overview of the many projects and initiatives in their County government."
Higgins said county residents will be able to watch the update without any potential health risks given the dangers of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"As always, the health and safety of the public remains our top priority," Higgins said. “It’s our honor to be able to provide this service to our community in a way that is both safe and in keeping with the latest advancements in technology.”
The 23-minute video not only features an update from Higgins on behalf of the county commission, but also other county government leaders review challenges and successes from the past year and a preview of what's to come in 2021.
