The Georgia Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge from a local couple against the city of Dawsonville over construction of a motorsports park in western Dawson County.
According to the order handed down in Atlanta on Monday, West and Helen Hamryka, whose home and horse farm sit adjacent to the park site on Duck Thurmond Road, failed to follow the discretionary procedure when filing their appeal.
Dawson County Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, Director Richard Sims was awarded the Volunteer/Citizen of the Year Award on Monday at the Emergency Managers Association of Georgia's annual banquet.
The award is presented to those individuals who volunteer their time to improve the delivery of emergency management services within the community. Sims was one of three chosen to receive the award for 2011.
