October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. With 2020 looking very differently for all of us...our usual awareness events will also change. But we don't want our current events to cause us to lose the awareness needed for Domestic Violence in our community. We have these signs that we will be placing throughout our 17 Counties in SWGA. If you would like a sign at your business...please message with the business name and we will get these out the last week of September. You can also call Kinsley at 229-439-7094. This is a small way to bring awareness in our community and make a difference!!

Albany Utilities Offers Incentive to Help Increase Census Numbers

(Albany, GA)- Responding to the 2020 Census has a considerable impact on our community, school lunches, plans for highways, support for public safety, and families in need. In support of encouraging full participation, the Albany Utility Board is graciously sponsoring weekly drawings to support the 鈥淐ENSUS 2020 UTILITY INCENTIVE鈥.

Customers have a chance to win a $500 utility bill credit when they fill out the 2020 Census form by phone or online by September 30th.
To qualify for the raffle, you must be a residential Albany Utility customer with an active account. Customers must submit their Verification Code showing they completed the Census form, have valid contact information to be contacted by staff to confirm the utility account. The City will live-stream drawings so customers can watch and listen for their Census confirmation number to be called out.

Raffle forms, for the drawings, can be picked up at the payment drop-box, or the drive-thru at 401 Pine Avenue. Customers will not be allowed to divide the $500 credit between several accounts. Spending ten minutes answering ten questions today will impact our future for the next ten years.
