Fulton County and courts to open for business Wednesday, after Irma


Fulton County will open for normal business on Wednesday, after closing for two days as Tropical Storm Irma pushed through town.

The county courts will also reopen.

Still, the county urged employees and residents to “exercise caution” as they return to work.

County officials asked residents to report downed trees and power lines, but to stay away from them. To report a downed power line, call Georgia Power at 1-888-891-0938.

Residents in South Fulton and the Fulton Industrial Boulevard district that notice any issues are asked to contact Fulton’ public works department at 404-613-3108.

Fulton will update its recovery efforts on its website, www.fultoncountyga.gov, and on Twitter and Facebook with @Fulton Info.
