Expanded Library Hours at LaFayette and Rossville Branches

Release from the Cherokee Regional Library System:

LaFayette, GA – Beginning August 1st, Walker County residents will have increased access to two of its public library branches.

The LaFayette-Walker County Public library will be open an additional four hours each week, on Thursday and Friday mornings.  The additional hours means LaFayette branch will now open at 10:00 a.m. every day that they are open.

The Rossville Public Library is now open until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, which gives this location a second extended evening.  This not only adds convenience for those who can’t come to the library during daytime hours, but provides a second night to offer quality after-hour programs that have become popular at this branch.

These additional library hours would not be possible without the continued support from all of the library’s funding agencies and donors.

New Landfill Hours Effective April 15th

Chickamauga, GA – In an effort to improve the customer experience, the Walker County Landfill will begin opening to the public on Wednesdays, starting the week of April 15th.  The move comes as the county adjusts gate hours at the landfill to make public access times more consistent and less confusing.

Effective April 15th, gate hours will run 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday for all customers, residential and commercial.  Customers will need to be in line before 4:00 p.m. in order to receive service.

Also, beginning the week of April 15th, Walker County Police will begin issuing fines for unsecured/uncovered loads.  Georgia law (O.C.G.A. 40-6-248.1) clearly states no vehicle shall be driven or moved on any public road unless such vehicle is constructed or loaded or covered so as to prevent any of its load from dropping, escaping or shifting in such a manner as to:

(1) Create a safety hazard; or
(2) Deposit litter on public or private property while such vehicle is on a public road.

Unsecured/uncovered loads lead to littering and motor vehicle crashes.
