Rome City Commission meets Monday

September 26, 2021–12:35 p.m.


The Rome City Commission will conduct a public hearing for a couple of rezoning requests for property on Sunrise Drive when they meet Monday.

The Ford dealership is hoping to expand its service department to the parcel, add a paint booth and construct an oil change place.

Commissioners are also expected to discuss the recently announced purchase of the Northwest Georgia Regional Hospital property.

The State of Georgia recently accepted an offer of $2.25 million from the Rome-Floyd County Development Authority to purchase the 132.5-acre site for economic development.

During the caucus, commissioners will get an update on the Downtown Rome open container trial period, which began August 5 and is set to expire on October 30.

The caucus begins at 5 pm with the regular meeting starting at 6:30.
