Georgia House Passes Legislation to Help Chatham County Areas Continue to Receive City Services


ATLANTA, GA – April 2, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — The Georgia House of Representatives passed House Resolution 136 on Friday, March 26, 2010, by a vote of 160-1.  Sponsored by state Representative Bob Bryant (D-Garden City), HR 136 amends the Georgia Constitution to allow owners of real property located in the industrial area of Chatham County to remove the property from being included in the industrial area. The property could then be annexed by Garden City, so that city services could continue to be provided.

“This legislation was requested by Garden City,” said Representative Bryant. “I was happy to help the businesses in Garden City continue to receive the services that allow them to stay open for business.”

HR 136 has been sent to the Senate for consideration.  A link to the amendment can be found by clicking here.


Representative Bob Bryant represents the citizens of District 160, which includes portions of Chatham County.  He was elected into the House of Representatives in 2004 and currently serves on the Economic Development & Tourism, State Institutions & Property, and Reapportionment, Transportation, and Ways & Means Committees.
