   Columbia County at Work

Have you ever wondered what your sales tax dollars and stormwater utility fees actually do?  Columbia County at Work is here to answer your questions!

Columbia County at Work is a web based application that, much like the projects it highlights, is constantly under construction.  It highlights projects funded by SPLOST, Georgia DOT, and Stormwater fees that range from quick response to long term construction improvements.  The site is a result of a partnership with Construction and Facilities Management and the Engineering Services division, and while Columbia County at Work provides an overview of projects currently happening in the County, it is in no way a complete listing of all of the work being done.  More information about projects, whether they're featured on the site or not, can be found by visiting the respective department's website or calling 311.

If you have questions about how to use the application, please call the GIS Department at 706-868-3421.
