Fill Your Summer with Family Fun

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

After a cold winter and rainy spring, I’m looking forward to the warmer summer months, spending time outside with my family. Though I have to admit, the rain has been a real plus — it’s nice to see Georgia’s lake levels back up and the Level 1 drought restrictions lifted after several years.

Milton's Long-Term Vision — Enhancing the Quality of Life for All Residents

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. It’s even harder to believe that I’m heading into my fourth and final term as Milton’s mayor. I am humbled by the support offered during the recent election, and I’m honored to serve Milton residents for another four years. Together, we’ve accomplished so much in a short period of time. Every chance I get, I tell people that Milton wouldn’t be what it is today without the support of our residents.
