As some of you may be aware, there has been some confusion on this year’s tax notices in regards to the $10 Fire Protection Fee.  The manner in which the fee is assessed was changed beginning this year to include all parcels, regardless of whether or not a structure exists on said parcel.  Due to an oversight, the fee has been inadvertently assessed on residents in the county’s three municipalities.  The fee should only be assessed on those properties in the unincorporated areas of the county.  Amended tax notices will be sent out to those taxpayers in the municipalities as soon as possible.  For anyone living in Wrightsville, Kite, or Adrian who has already paid their tax bill in full, including the fire fee, that fee will be refunded to you.  We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, and steps are being taken to ensure that the fee is assessed fairly and appropriately.


The Fire Protection Fee benefits everyone in the county, but is considered mutual aid inside the city limits of Wrightsville, Kite, and Adrian.  The fee enables the County’s Volunteer Fire Departments to better enhance the level of service they provide to our citizens.  We believe that our volunteer firefighters and First Responders are the best around and provide a level of service that is unmatched by many of our surrounding communities.  The Fire Protection Fee enables the County to maintain this level of service and our commitment to making public safety our first priority.  Again, we apologize for any inconvenience that has been caused.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Board of Commissioner’s Office at 864-3388 ext. 4.

This is to make all citizens of Johnson County aware that, as of this point forward, the responsibility for renting The Depot has been moved to the Johnson County Board of Commissioners Office. We will now be the point of contact for all those wishing to utilize it for their events. The Depot will remain available as always for community events and the general public, and we encourage the citizens of Johnson County to continue to utilize it for their enjoyment and benefit. For more information or to rent The Depot, please contact us at 864-3388, ext. 4 or come by our office located at 2484 West Elm Street in Wrightsville.

Sec. 22-173. – Purpose.
The purpose of this article is to improve the Johnson County E-911/Emergency Communication System and to provide for a uniform county-wide address system with respect to street or house numbers assigned to all residences and principal buildings and businesses within the county. This will assist fire and rescue companies/agencies, law enforcement agencies, the United States Postal Service, parcel delivery companies, utility companies, tax appraisal, public works, planning and the general public in the timely and efficient provision of services to residents and businesses in Johnson County, Georgia.
(Ord. of 11-14-2011(2), § 3)
Sec. 22-174. – Display required.
Every location furnished with a 911 address outside of any incorporated area must display that address so that it is visible from the public roadway. Mobile home parks and apartment complexes, including duplex dwelling structures, shall also be required to have each individual pad, lot number, or apartment number displayed in a readily visible manner and in compliance with the requirements of this article. Such lot, pad, or apartment numbers shall be in sequence unless directional signs are provided for numbers not in sequence.

If the addresses or numbers are displayed on signs, such signs must be of a durable type and must be located not more than ten feet from the center line of the street or road in front of the property. The numbers on such signs shall be readily visible from the street by persons traveling along the street in each direction.

If the house, business, apartment, or other building or location to be numbered is more than 40 feet from the centerline of the street or roadway in front of the property, or for any reason a street address number affixed to the location would not be readily visible from the street or roadway by persons traveling along the street or roadway in each direction, then the 911 address numbers shall be displayed on a sign or mailbox in the premises next to the public roadway in front of the structure, and complying with the requirements of this section.

Sec. 22-177. – Proper maintenance.
It shall be the responsibility of each property owner to properly maintain their 911 address sign. Tall grass or bushes are to be kept cut and/or trimmed so as not to obstruct the signs.

(Ord. of 11-14-2011(2), § 7)
Sec. 22-178. – Duty of owner; notification; and enforcement.

Upon such violation, notice shall be given to the owner of the property, or his agent, by mailing to his last known address of record, specifying the nature of such violation and requiring that such violation be remedied and brought into compliance within ten days after receipt of such notice. Notification shall be made by the designated code enforcement officer and/or the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.
Any property owner who does not comply with this article shall be in violation of this article and said violation shall result in a penalty of not more than $1,000.00 plus the cost of enforcement and prosecution. Said prosecution will be pursued through the Magistrate Court of Johnson County, Georgia. The designated code enforcement officer and/or the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office shall be responsible for enforcement of this provision.
