Moratorium Adopted

At their September 8th meeting, Mayor and City Council adopted a six month, citywide moratorium on the acceptance of new applications for achieving residential densities greater than those afforded by the present base zoning. This includes applications for rezoning that seek increased residential densities, applications for Valley Overlay concept plan approval that seek increased residential densities, and similar. The moratorium does not apply to building permits for work such as new construction, additions and renovations on previously platted lots or projects that are currently within the review and approval process. This moratorium is set to expire on March 9, 2023 but may be withdrawn by Mayor and Council prior to this date.

Please email with any questions.

Service Alert for Solid Waste Services

Ball Ground Waste Management Customers, please see the below message from the company regarding possible delays in service:

As you are likely aware, Covid-19 cases have recently seen a dramatic global increase, decimating communities, families, and businesses across Georgia.  This new variant is highly transmissible, and the rapid spread of Covid-19 has temporarily impacted our workforce at all levels. 

Currently, we have a very high percentage of our Drivers and Helpers out with Covid-19.  These absences, while temporary, are negatively impacting our ability to provide on-time service to our customers. While we are working through this as best we can with available staff, you will likely experience a delay in service.  With this Saturday being the New Year’s Day holiday, any scheduled customers that were not serviced this week, may have to be carried over to next week. 

We apologize for any delays and disruptions in service as these circumstances are beyond our control.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
