Monday night, November 14, 2022 beginning around 11:00 pm we experienced at least 6 brief power outages of the transmission line bringing power into the Talking Rock substation. Affected areas were Carnes Mill, Talking Rock, Fisher Creek, Jones Mountain, Price Creek, Pleasant Valley, Burnt Mountain, Grandview, Old Highway 5, Wingate Road and surrounding areas. The last occurrence was around 5:35 a.m. this morning.
It is our understanding that the transmission and generation facilities involved have isolated the issue and this should result in an end to the brief and sporadic power outages. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The quarterly meeting of Amicalola EMC’s Operation RoundUp board was held in October and $20,119 was awarded to area non-profits and individuals in need. This brings the total awarded during 2022 to $90,383. All donations are used for food, shelter, clothing, health needs, education and specialty needs. Donations are also given to house fire victims within the Amicalola EMC service area.
The monthly cost to you can never be more than .99 a month and the average is only about $6 a year. Please call 706-253-5200 to join!
The 2022 Bright Ideas teacher grant program, sponsored by Amicalola EMC, awarded $50,737 to 74 winning teachers across our service area. Teachers in 30 schools received grants of up to $1,000 each for classroom projects.
The program is funded using unclaimed property in accordance with Georgia’s unclaimed property laws. The 2022 grants bring the total amount awarded since the program began in 2010 to $576,870.59. Amicalola EMC is proud to support our schools, our teachers and our students.
(Travis Cline, AEMC board member; Mary Marble teacher at Ball Ground Elementary; and John Bennett, AEMC board member. Ms. Marble, one of 74 winning teachers across our service area, won $900 for a 3D printing station for the STEM lab).
Unlike Election Day, you do not have to vote at an assigned polling location during early voting, you may vote at any early voting location within your county. In 2022, early voting will end on Friday, November 4.
