Monday, May 4, 2020 was a wonderful day for Anna Sewell of Blakely, Ga. Ms. Sewell was one of several citizens who qualified for a complete demolition and rebuild through the 2018-2019 City CDBG Project. Ms. Sewell’s residence is a three bedroom, two bath 1,188 square feet, energy efficient home located at 91 North Avenue. The City of Blakely is thankful to have been able to obtain a grant that assisted in helping several citizens with their housing needs.

We would like to say congratulations to Ms. Sewell on her beautiful new home and wish her all the best in getting settled in and making it her own!

Present for the finalization of this project were: Ms. Anna Sewell, new home owner; Ms. Margaret Zachary, City Council Member; Ms. Stephanie Hanks, City Hall Customer Service Representative, City Hall Customer Support Representative and Notary Pubic; Mr. Mark Hawkins, City Building Official; Wanda and Ivan Minks, grant writers; and Ashley Rodgers, building contractor for People Helping People United, Inc.
