BOC talks library, IT upgrades
new courthouse
The Dawson County Government Center is located at 25 Justice Way in downtown Dawsonville.
The Board of Commissioners took the next step in planning for future upgrades to the Dawson County Library during their April 7 meetings. Board members voted 4-0 for the county to commit to the 10 percent portion of a “90-10” capital outlay grant, a critical step in the library’s process for securing state funding. Chestatee Regional Library System Director Leslie Clark shared a preliminary estimate of $671,000 for renovation and construction costs, of which the county’s obligations would be about $67,100. Once the library system gets a commitment letter from the county, they can work toward getting on the capital projects list, which is updated during each state legislative session, Clark said.
