This new online experience for Walker County Government launched in January.

Walkercountyga.gov is the new home for government services, records, news, information, recreation and more.

Joe Legge, Walker County Public Relations Director, said, “I wanted to create a storefront that was inviting and well organized. This site is one of the first places a family considering a move to Walker County or a business interested in locating here will see. It’s also becoming a primary source of information for residents to learn how their government operates.”

During this month’s winter weather event, a running tab of schedule changes was posted on the homepage, which hundreds of people viewed for updates.

Legge designed walkercountyga.gov in house, saving taxpayers roughly $10,000. He’ll continue to update and expand the site as part of his job responsibilities. “In the near future, you’ll be able to apply for a marriage license and weapons carry permit online, view a countywide points of interest map and watch a new video series currently in the development stage.”

Municode, which maintains the Walker County code book, is in the process of updating the code book. In 2019, look for a searchable codes database to be added online, as well.
