Lakewood Dr. and Lakewood Ct. - Last week, sewer contractors located and repaired a leak in the system. Because they had to dig up areas to locate the leak, the areas around the manholes must be recompacted before the area can be prepped for paving.
The contractors will be digging up and recompacting the areas around the manholes on Lakewood Court where the asphalt has settled.
City crews will be testing other areas to check for suitable material and compaction.
Douglas Hills – The City is preparing the entrance of Ashton Way for paving, which will take place within the next week.
Contractors will be working along Bridgeton Lane in the coming days to excavate and recompact the material so that the road can be repaved.
Thank you for your patience as we continue work on the Lake Douglas East Sewer Project.

Bainbridge Public Safety held its second annual Officer for a Day Program earlier this month. The program, which began last year under the direction of PSO Marvin Knight, was created to allow special needs children to spend a day as a Public Safety Officer.
“I like to call these special kids handi-capable,” said Knight. “I have a sister who is hand-capable, so this program is something that is close to my heart. I want to show kids that they can do whatever they put their mind to.”
This year’s Officer for a Day was 13 year old Dallas Thigpen, a student at Bainbridge Middle School. After picking Thigpen up from BMS, he and Knight began patrolling through different school zones. They then visited 911 workers and different city departments before returning to Public Safety Headquarters. There, Thigpen was greeted by City Manager Chris Hobby, BPS Director Eric Miller and Deputy Director Frank Green. Thigpen was given a plaque certifying him as an Officer for the Day. After receiving his plaque, he had a brief meeting with shift Captain James Dollar before he and Knight were treated to lunch courtesy of Golden Corral. After lunch, they had fire training and fought fire because Thigpen returned to school.

On Wednesday, May 8, sewer contractors will begin directionally boring the water main replacement near the 1900 block of Lake Douglas Road. Contractors will be working from 8:00 a.m. until dark each day. Please watch for flagmen.
While we will do our best to accommodate local traffic, residents should expect some delays and detours. One lane traffic should be expected for the duration of the construction. Additionally, for the safety of construction crews and citizens alike, there may be times when the road must be closed.
