The Street Department maintains 200 acres at the City of Covington Airport that has to be mowed on a regular basis to keep the runway lights in clear view.
The Transportation Department
If you have safety concerns within the right of way of the city streets, pedestrian safety at intersections or on the sidewalks, potholes or sinkholes to report or traffic signal pedestrian light or signal lights out please call the Customer Service department at 770.385.2000.
FOUR! Motorized Golf Cart Information.
In 2008, the City of Covington council approved the passage of an ordinance allowing for the use of motorized golf carts on city streets along with regular car traffic.
Only persons with a valid drivers license or instruction permit may operate golf carts on city streets. (Owning a pair of plaid pants helps too.)
