SCBC set November 7 as date for Amnesty Day

The Stephens County Board of Commissioners have set the date for this year’s amnesty day event.

This year, the event will be held on Saturday, November 7.

During the recent Stephens County Board of Commissioners meeting, County Administrator Phyllis Ayers opened the discussion by saying Stephens County residents continue to call her office asking when the next amnesty day event will be held.

The Amnesty Day event is open to every resident of Stephens County, and provides a way to dispose of any junk that may be cluttering the streets, yards, and homes in the county.

The Amnesty Day event is held at the Stephens County Road Department, located at 1587 Scenic Drive, in Toccoa, and will begin at 8 a.m.

Like other amnesty day events, Stephens County Amnesty Day is only for residents of Stephens County, officials will be on site, checking vehicle tags at the entrance.

If you have an out-of-town tag, to prove your residency please bring a piece of mail, such as a utility bill, and your driver’s license or ID with your Stephens County Address.

Originally, the amnesty day event was slated for April 4; however, due to the coronavirus pandemic the event was cancelled.

Commissioner Michelle Ivester made a motion declaring November 7, 2020 as Amnesty Day with Commissioner James Addison seconding the motion.

The motion was approved unanimously.
