It's Arbor Day in Newnan

It's Arbor Day in Newnan

NEWNAN -- (City of Newnan) In celebration of Arbor Day a tree planting ceremony will be held at the Male Academy Museum on western end of Temple Park at 11:00 a.m. on Friday morning, February 18, 2011.

The City of Newnan will also be receiving its Tree City USA designation award, for the 21st consecutive year, issued by the National Arbor Day Foundation. A representative from the Georgia Forestry Commission will present the award. This year a white dogwood will be planted at the site.

To qualify as a Tree City USA community, a town or city must meet four standards established by The Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community would have a viable tree management plan and program.

Property Tax Bills, Coming Soon

2010 property tax bills for City of Newnan residents will be mailed Wednesday, September 15th, with a due date of October 29, 2010.  The City would like to remind citizens that anyone owning property in the City of Newnan will receive two separate tax bills, one from the City of Newnan and one from Coweta County, each payable to the appropriate party and with different due dates.

Tax bills, per State Law, are being mailed to the owner on record as of January 1, 2010.  If you acquired property in 2010, or if you do not receive a tax bill for any property you own in the City of Newnan, please call the Finance Department at 770-254-2351.  Failure to pay by the due date of October 29, 2010 will result in a 1% per month penalty being added, regardless of the reason.  Postmark dates are not accepted; payment must be received by the due date to avoid penalty.

The City is mailing 13,896 tax bills this year.
