Storm creates extra work and costs for governments | Politics | Macon.com

This week’s winter storm affected local governments with extra cost and work, but Middle Georgia escaped the public-service disaster experienced in Atlanta.

Macon-Bibb government offices closed at 3 p.m. Tuesday and reopened at noon Thursday. That included canceling a commission work session; but emergency personnel and the Roads Division of Public Works were told to show up as scheduled. They remained on the job, or at least on call, throughout the closure.

Regular services including trash pickup restarted at noon Thursday. Trash collection was running a day behind, but crews were expected to work Friday to catch up.
