Boil Advisory Lifted – Washington Place Drive & Grayton Way Area

December 6, 2019

BOIL WATER ADVISORY FOR THE WASHINGTON PLACE DRIVE AND GRAYTON WAY AREA is lifted as of December 7, 2019. Repair on a water main is causing water pressure to drop significantly.  A potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system. In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. The advisory will be in effect for approximately 24 hours for testing to be completed.  An update will be sent out when the advisory is lifted. Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by their drinking water utility that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.

New Restaurant Planned for Downtown Perry Receives $10,000 Tourism Grant

November 25, 2019

The Perry Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Georgia Power presented a $10,000 check to Oliver Hazard’s restaurant in front of their new location at 905 Carroll Street in Historic Downtown Perry. Oliver Hazard’s founders are John Hulbert and Chad Evans.  Mr. Evans is a founder of several popular destination restaurants in downtown Macon.  Nearly all the menu items will be harvested or purchased from Georgia-based growers in a farm-to-table concept.  They hope to draw visitors who are local and “foodies” who travel to dine.  A full bar will offer liquor, wine, and craft beer from Georgia’s finest craft breweries. The name Oliver Hazard is the heartbeat of Perry’s history.  Perry, incorporated in 1824, was named after Oliver Hazard Perry, a hero from the War of 1812. City of Perry Economic Development Director, Ashley Hardin, and Mr. Hulbert applied for the Georgia Tourism Product Development Funding Program in June after the Perry Area Convention and Visitors Bureau participated in the Georgia Department of Economic Development Tourism Product Development team tour.  The program provides financial support for new and expanding tourism projects.
