Calhoun and Gordon County government officials met
this morning at 10:00 a.m. to continue planning regarding the COVID 19
Following the Governor’s outline for limiting the
crowd exposure and protecting a vulnerable population, Calhoun and Gordon
County have agreed to take preliminary steps to close the Senior Center. Steps
will be taken to ensure that the seniors will receive their meal service and we
will have staff making daily welfare calls to our seniors.
Both the City of Calhoun and Gordon County Parks and
Recreation Departments will close their gyms and will be closed to organized
activities, games, practices, and all gatherings. The parks will remain open
for walking and passive activities but the intention is to limit social
interactions. The recreation departments will be open for the March 24th
Presidential Preference Primary.
The conference room of the Gordon County Agriculture
Service Center will be closed to public meetings.
We would like to remind everyone that both City and
County online services are available for those who do not want to be in public
areas. Please see the City and County websites and social media accounts for
more details concerning tax payments, utility payments, court services, etc.
Calhoun and Gordon County continue to attend briefings and gather information. The central theme is to be prepared but do not panic while we all work together to promote and maintain a healthy Gordon County.

The U.S. Census Bureau is currently hiring temporary positions for
the 2020 Census in our area. All 2020
Census jobs are temporary. The largest number of positions available are for
census takers. Pay rates vary by area.
By working for the Census Bureau, our community has a special opportunity to help make the 2020 Census an accurate and complete count. There are so many reasons our nation needs to be counted completely and accurately. The count happens every 10 years with the decennial census, which influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year. Here’s some of what the census numbers effect:
School lunch programs.
Community development grants.
Road and school construction.
