The Rockdale County Board of Assessors is offering extended hours on Saturday, June 8, 8 a.m. – noon, at their offices, 981 Milstead Ave., Conyers.
Chairman Will Barkley said the extended Saturday service would give those who are unable to come in during the week the chance to do so on a weekend day.
“We owe it to the citizens of Rockdale County to be as accessible as possible to ensure they are able to ask questions regarding their property assessments and exemptions,” Barkley said. “We realize the need to sometimes do things outside of the scope of our daily operations to assist those who cannot get to our office during normal business hours. Our goal is to put citizens first with an emphasis on our seniors.”
