This year, the Decatur MLK Jr. Service Project decided to create an award to recognize participants that go above and beyond to support the project. The MVP Award (Most Valuable Participant) will be given out each year to a person or organization that has been identified for their exemplary contributions.

M. Cary & Daughters Plumbing was selected as the first recipient for the 2014 event. The business has worked with the program for four years, and donated thousands of dollars worth of time and resources.

“We simply could not do what we do without their skills to stop leaks, fix broken pipes and fixtures, replace toilets… you name it and they’ve done it,” says Paul Mitchell, chair of the executive committee.

Michelle Cary accepted the award at the City Commission meeting on February 18 and was overwhelmed by the recognition.

“This isn’t why we participate,” Michelle said quietly after receiving the award. Her humble nature reiterates why this award is so valuable. Contractors and individuals donate their time every year to this project with only one goal in mind; support Decatur’s low-income seniors.

Thank you to M. Cary & Daughters Plumbing and all the other donors to the project.

Changes for Permitting in the City of Decatur

Starting January 21, 2014, permitting services will take place in a new location at the renovated Public Works Facility, 2635 Talley Street.

The move takes place at the same time as the formation of a new one-stop shop for permitting that will make it easier for residents and applicants to access these services.  This one-stop shop is part of a larger reorganization and the creation of the new Design, Environment & Construction Division of Public Works.  The new Division will be home to permitting, inspections, engineering, streets, the storm water utility, and codes enforcement.

Limited Permitting Next Week:  What you need to know

Between Jan. 13 – Jan. 17 the City of Decatur will provide limited permitting services during the move from City Hall to the Talley Street Public Works Facility.  During this time, roofing, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and fencing permits will be issued.
