The Building, Grounds and Sanitation employees take pride in keeping the City of Cornelia looking great.  We use environmentally friendly policies to ensure we are doing the best for both the citizens and our environment.

Thanks to the hard work of our Building and Grounds Department and the contract that we have with Higgins Construction, the City of Cornelia planted eight Willow Oaks and four Nuttall Oaks in and around the new Community House parking lot on Arbor Day, February 19, 2016.

For the last 26 years, the City of Cornelia has received the Tree City USA status, and the Growth Award status for 25 years, in management of its forest resources. A well-managed urban forest provides many benefits including attracting new businesses, jobs, and residents to the area. Healthy community trees also touch lives of people within the community by providing clean air, clean water, shadier streets, stormwater management and aesthetic beauty.
