Spalding County imposes curfew; state of emergency


The Spalding County Board of Commissioners has voted to ratify a declaration of a state of emergency and enacted a curfew.

The curfew will be imposed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, March 27.

The resolution was approved by a vote of 3 to 1 with Commissioner James Dutton opposing.

The specific details of both the state of emergency and the curfew are not yet known because the proposals were not made available on the meeting agenda.

However, during discussion, County Manager William Wilson quoted the proposed resolution, stating, “A curfew is imposed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.”

Wilson said the proposals were works in progress and the final versions will be made available.

The GRIP will report more fully on those legal specifications when that information becomes available.
