Discover Ball Ground And Meet It's Elected Officials

City of Ball Ground Mayor Rick Roberts and City Council held their first meeting of 2021 on January 14. Though the meeting was in a different format, it was business as usual. This year marks the 25th consecutive year that Mayor Roberts has called a Council meeting to order. He is Ball Ground's longest serving mayor on record.

Mayor Roberts was first elected as a council member and took office in 1986. In 1988, he was appointed to fill the office of mayor when Mayor John Segars vacated his seat to run for Probate Judge of Cherokee County. Mayor Roberts served five years before deciding not to seek reelection. Calvin Hill then served one term and had just begun his second term before resigning when he moved out of Ball Ground. Once again, Rick Roberts qualified (without opposition) to fill the vacated seat, which he has held ever since.

In addition to Mayor Roberts spending much of his life as a dedicated public servant, Ball Ground has five council members who have done the same. Frank Homiller began his career in local government in 1995, Andrenia Stoner in 1999, John Byrd in 2003, Lee Prettyman in 2005, and Mickey O'Malley in 2010. O'Malley previously served on City Council in 2001 and 2002. These dedicated men and women have worked tirelessly to make Ball Ground a destination for all to enjoy.

Our historic downtown is filled with locally owned businesses. On any given day, Barrell House Coffee has customers working on their laptops or meeting old friends for coffee. Scooped on Main is another family operated business where visitors come together for a sweet treat. When looking for a locally brewed cold beer, the 21+ crowd visits Rock Solid Brewing Company, which is downtown Ball Ground's newest business.

Besides offering plenty to do in the downtown area, Ball Ground features lots of entertainment options just outside the district. Wildcat on a Wing/Feathers Edge Vineyards offers a wide selection of local wines and a nationally sourced selection of fine crafts, too. On some weekends, customers can enjoy a glass of wine while listening to live entertainment. Also, the city is now home to Wilkes Meat Market of Ball Ground, which is a full-service meat market.

Small towns like Ball Ground do not always make the latest and greatest "best of" lists, but don't miss out on coming to discover for yourself why "Ball Ground Rocks!"
