Augustans Responded First Telephone Town Hall

AUGUSTA, GA (PR) – Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr. hosted his first Telephone Town Hall Meeting last evening with nearly 2,000 Augustans.  Mayor Davis gave a brief update about the work he is doing as Mayor of the City and informed residents about what to expect in the days ahead. 

During the call, Davis took questions about stormwater, downtown development, the Rocky Creek area and Regency Mall, transit and many other issues raised by Augustans during the call. The technology made it possible for Mayor Davis to ask residents opinion, questions, and 99% of call participants agreed that they liked the Telephone Town Hall as a way to talk with Mayor Davis.

“It is a winning day when we can engage so many of our residents and talk with them about what is happening in their government,” said Davis.

Mayor Davis reminded constituents to call 311 or his office at 706-821-1831, if they need assistance with local government issues.

Hardie Davis, Jr. serves as the 84th Mayor of the consolidated government for Augusta-Richmond County, since January 2015. He may be reached by phone at 706.821.1831 or email at

Online Survey

Last year, the "Digital City" award winning IT Department presented the findings of an online survey, the first of its kind, and less than 700 people answered to the request that was on the cybersphere for some months. This in spite of Augusta's efforts to become the "Silicon Valley of the South" and even housing the Cyber Command Center.

Mayor Davis in one teleconference managed to have the attention of more ears than the online survey, asking what residents want from their government. He used land line communication with his residents.
